Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill has paid tribute to the attitude of Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes.

He said: "I've been a player and a manager and won things and I know what it takes to win things.

"It's about being able to compete week in, week out. All you have to do is look at Paul Scholes.

"He's won umpteen Championships and he still plays as if he's 18. That comes from within and from being really successful and hungry.

"These are the type of things we're striving for and they take longer than 10 minutes to achieve."
