Newcastle legend Shearer says Man Utd's Scholes best Premier League has seen

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer feels Paul Scholes is the greatest the Premier League has seen.

And he says Scholes' Manchester United teammate Ryan Giggs is not far behind.

"It's a tough question to answer - but to my mind it would have to be a choice of two men: Ryan Giggs or Paul Scholes," said Shearer.

"I've got to say, Scholes is the best player I've played with and against; he's got absolutely everything that a midfielder needs.

"Playing with him for England, you knew that when you made a run, the ball was going to come at you with precision nine times out of 10, and there's not many players who can do that."
