Manchester United legend Paul Scholes wasn't surprised by Larnell Cole's Carling Cup chance last month at Leeds United.

Scholes, now on United's coaching staff has likened the midfielder to QPR winger Shaun Wright-Phillips.

He told the Observer: "Larnell Cole. He looks a great prospect. He's very small but he's a very clever footballer. He's similar to Shaun Wright-Phillips but a player who can play inside a bit better than Shaun. Shaun's an out and out wide man but Larnell can play in a three in midfield."
