Man Utd icon Scholes: Zidane, Xavi praise just embarrassing!

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has shrugged off praise from the game's greats.

Scholes has never been one for blowing his own trumpet but the likes of Zinedine Zidane and Xavi led the tributes to him.

He said: "It's obviously nice for these players to say that because they really are the top players, the Zidanes and the Xavis. But you are a little bit embarrassed.

"Replacing me is up to the manager and he will have his ideas about how the team goes forward. There have been a lot of players who have left this club, like Roy Keane, Mark Hughes, Eric Cantona, Bryan Robson. People wondered how you replace them. Somehow this club managed."
