Man Utd legend Scholes: I was never among best in world

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes insists he was not among the best in the world.

Scholes hung up the boots at the end of last season.

"I don't agree with being one of the best players in the world," Scholes told Red News. "These players go on to win European Championships, they go on to win World Cups and I always felt I fell short of that level.

"I've only won one European Cup, whereas the top players in the world like your Xavis and [Andres] Iniestas are there year in, year out.

"These are the players, I mean your [Zinedine] Zidanes, Ronaldos, these are the ones who are winning World Cups, these are the proper players and I think I fell below that level."
