Paul Scholes reveals the best player he’s ever faced

Paul Scholes revealed the name of the greatest footballer he ever played against during a charity dinner on Thursday night.

The dinner, organised by the Association of Former Manchester United Players at Old Trafford, was put on in recognition of the legendary midfielder.

During the night Scholes spoke about his glittering career with the Red Devils and was even praised by his former boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who delivered a special message to the 43-year-old via video link.

Scholes was also asked to reveal which one of his 155 goals was his favourite during his time at Manchester United, and one effort immediately came to mind.

The goal he most enjoyed was the 25-yard volley he scored against Aston Villa in a 3-0 away win by Manchester United all the way back in December 2006.

"They always look good when they go in off the bar," recalled Scholes.

"Maybe it wasn’t the most important in terms of a match but that was one that gave me a lot of satisfaction."

Scholes was then asked to reveal the best player he ever came up against and went for Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta.

The midfielder came through the La Masia academy before making over 400 appearances for Barcelona – winning anything and everything he could get his hands on.

He also scored the extra-time goal in the 2010 World Cup final, as Spain tasted success in the competition for the very first time at the expense of Holland.
