Man Utd legend Scholes tribute to Barcelona midfielder Xavi

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes paid tribute to Xavi before Barcelona's Champions League triumph last night.

Scholes wrote in the London Evening Standard: "He is a clever player.

"In games against him I would think 'right, I'm getting to get close to him for 10 minutes', but as soon as I got there he would be gone. He sees everything: team-mates, opponents, the shape of the game, and he sees it before anyone else. He will know that Barcelona will miss him but, as with all great clubs, he will also know that no one is indispensable."
