He told The Sun: “Every player has to be himself— but for me Scholes was one of the best ever.
“He was amazing. I still enjoy watching his videos on YouTube.
"Sometimes I go home and watch him to learn something new.
“He had everything, he was the modern midfielder — scoring goals, defending well, tackling. I don't copy anybody but I do like to watch Scholes. I also watch other players to see what I can do better.
