Man Utd legend Van der Sar: Scholesy just fantastic

Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar has paid tribute to former teammate Paul Scholes.

Van der Sar is full of praise for Scholes, who stepped out of retirement 12 months ago.

"Paul Scholes was the best English player," he said.

"I love the way Scholesy plays.

"He can play so simply, but his technique is so good, the way he touches the ball and lays it forward for his passing range. He's just fantastic.

"I used to think I could play that position - 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."
