Eriksson: Man Utd legend Scholes the best I coached

Former England coach Sven Goran Eriksson has declared Paul Scholes the best he ever worked with.

Eriksson rates the Manchester United great ahead of the likes of Juan Veron, Gianluca Vialli and Steven Gerrard.

He told the Mirror, “I think Paul Scholes was the most talented player I have ever coached.

"There are many outstanding players of my time: Rooney, Beckham, Rio, Terry, Owen when he was at the peak of his career.

"But Scholes was a playmaker, as a defender, he wasn't the best in the world, but he could do it. He was a brilliant footballer."
