Man Utd legend Scholes: The 2 LaLiga icons I wanted to play with

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes admits there's two LaLiga icons he'd like to have played with.

Scholes spoke of a pair of stars that he would have loved to work with.

“I'll say one or two," Scholes told manutd.com.

“Probably [Andres] Iniesta – sensational. He could go past players, could control games, as Xavi could as well. It's difficult to choose between them.

“And as a midfield player I always liked to link with a no.10. I think Zidane, as a no.10, playing with him would have been special. But throughout my career, I played with amazing no.10s and amazing players, so it was never something I craved, but in a fantasy world I suppose it'd have been nice to play with Zidane and Iniesta."
