Man Utd legend Scholes: Man City have best players in the league

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes feels Manchester City have the best players in the league.

Scholes, who won the Premier League 11 times under Sir Alex Ferguson, spoke ahead of this weekend's powder keg Manchester derby.

speaking in new book Class of 92: Out of our League, Scholes said: “There needs to be a real step up in quality in England.

“Other than Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva, we don't have the best players. All the best players are in other countries.

"The best players are in Spain, or at Bayern Munich and Juventus.

"We're linked with big players – Gareth Bale is a top player – but we don't get them now. Not anymore.

"You never see a Lionel Messi coming over here, you never see a Neymar in the Premier League."
