Vieira was a star and captain at Arsenal, who was United's greatest rivals in the late 1990's and early 2000's.
"As a player I played against Vieira was brilliant," Scholes told the A Goal In One podcast. "The way I played there was never an opponent I had to be fitter than, stronger than, more physical than. I was never that type of player, I was a passing player.
"I could beat players with passing but Vieira he was just so awkward, so tall, so long, so leggy. Just when you thought you had it he would nick it over your head."
