"Cristiano's a fantastic footballer and does things no other player can. I've tried a few times in training and fell over. If you wanted to build a footballer he has talents you'd look at."

About Scholes:

"Anyone who says they've not been shouted at other than Paul is probably lying. He can't be shouted at, he's too good to be shouted at. He doesn't make mistakes, he's just a great player. We've got a lot of great players but Paul Scholes is a fantastic footballer. You just say 'Paul, you do this' and that's it. Paul's loved as a footballer by his fellow professionals. For him not to have won the PFA Player of the Year or the Football Writers' Player of the Year is a travesty for someone of his talents."
