Van der Sar is full of praise for Scholes, who stepped out of retirement 12 months ago.
âPaul Scholes was the best English player,â he said.
âI love the way Scholesy plays.
âHe can play so simply, but his technique is so good, the way he touches the ball and lays it forward for his passing range. Heâs just fantastic.
âI used to think I could play that position â just get the ball and play it over the left-back or the right-back and the diagonal balls which he plays are just fantastic.â
