Man Utd legend Scholes: Mata pure No10

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes rates Juan Mata as a pure No10.

Scholes doesn't see Mata running box-to-box.

"I don't think he's similar to me. He's obviously a quality player but he's not a central-midfielder, he's a player who likes to play in the number 10 role," Scholes told MUTV and ManUtd.com.

"It's going to be difficult for the manager now as we've got five players vying for two positions. That can only be a healthy thing for competition though as the two forwards always need to impress because they know the talent waiting to take their place."
