Scholes starred in the centre for United for two decades, lifting an incredible 11 Premier League titles.
He told Sky Sports Monday Night Football: “At that time, this was the best four midfielders we had in England. I could not put one of these [Beckham, Lampard, Gerrard, Scholes] on the bench.
“I picked because I was convinced these four were the best. I was always convinced Gerrard and Lampard could play together. You could have put Gerrard on the left maybe and Scholes to the middle.
“Maybe Rooney could play wide but the only one who was not used to play in this position was Scholes, but he always came inside."
