Man Utd legend Neville tells fans: Just buy ticket for your kid and watch Scholes

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has urged Premier League fans to get to games and study Paul Scholes.

Neville wrote in the Mail on Sunday: " ... given that he's approaching his 38th birthday, and coming to the end of his career, I would urge anyone who loves football, particularly if they have a child who wants to learn from professionals, to go along to watch him play in the flesh this season.

"Don't watch anyone else. Just watch him for 90 minutes. Sacrifice your gate money and don't look at the ball, unless Scholes has it. Don't worry about watching the goals or any other player. Just look at his positioning, where he places himself, his body shape when he receives the ball, where he moves when he hasn't got the ball and how he sets himself to play the ball. You'll learn more about the game in 90 minutes than you will from any coaching video or training session."
