Man Utd legend Neville: Carrick just like Scholes on and off pitch

Manchester United legend Gary Neville says Michael Carrick is similar to Paul Scholes - on and off the pitch.

The Geordie has taken on the prime playmaker's mantle this season from Scholes.

"He's not interested in what I call the noise of football," said Neville. "He's not a flapper. There is never any fuss with him.

"In personality and approach, he's the closest thing to Paul Scholes you will find at United. As a player he is a dream to play with and be around."
