Man Utd keeper Lindegaard: Place goes silent when Scholes speaks

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard admits Paul Scholes has an aura about him.

Scholes struck in victory over Bolton Wanderers.

Lindegaard said: "There is no doubt that he is a quiet guy, he does not make a lot of noise, but you can feel his presence. The way he does things is something to live up to. That experience gives us something to look at and see how to be in this situation.

"When times are tough, or when they are good, you look at Scholesy and see how he is handling it, what he's doing, how he deals with the pressure.

"You won't get many words out of him. He thinks before he speaks. That is how it is. But he is one of the most respected guys in the team, and when he does open his mouth, it goes silent.

"People are listening."
