Dwight Yorke has described Paul Scholes as one of the legends to have played at Old Trafford. His reaction came on Tuesday following the news that the player called time on his career which encompassed 676 appearances for United after his debut in 1994 and brought him 10 Premier League titles in addition to the 2008 Champions League triumph.
“‘When you look back you talk about legends of the game, he’s certainly up there. Twenty trophies since 1994 – he just seems to get better and better,” Yorke told Sky Sports.
“I’ve had the honour of playing alongside him. The four years I’ve played alongside him, he is the best player, one of the first names on the manager’s teamsheet. He is just a complete legend. There are not enough players like Paul Scholes around anymore for my liking. Legend’ is over-used but this guy is right up there with the very best.”
