Scholes And Giggs Are The Best

Scholes And Giggs Are The Best

Sir Alex believes that Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes are the best players of his tenure at United.

It is some claim from a man who worked with Bryan Robson, Eric Cantona, Roy Keane, David Beckham, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney. But the arguments put forth by Fergie are valid, nobody can deny that.

Scholes, as you may know, might be back for Sunday's FA Cup clash against Tottenham at Old Trafford and it's something that fills Sir Alex with joy.

"It`s a big bonus for us having him back. Scholes` great asset down the years has been appearing in the box late," he said.

"The number of goals he has scored for us from midfield is unique. His other big assets are his passing, his composure and his thinking during a game.

At 33, I regard him just as highly as I did when he was 23.

"Players like Scholes and Ryan Giggs… look after themselves, give themselves extra years.

Look at Giggs. He`s flying this season. Giggs came on at Reading and the stats show he made 45 sprints in the second half. That`s incredible for a player of his age.


Well, Scholesy's goalscoring is what it once was but the cracker against Villa or the scrappy but important goal against Liverpool showed he can still do it. As for Giggs... well, he's been a fixture in the best eleven without debate since 1993... what more do I have to say? Fergie can say one more thing.

'What I`ve come to realise with these two players is I can no longer see an end to their careers. There must come a day when it will end. But the way it`s looking now, I can`t see that end coming. I think I`ll be away from the club before they will.

"Bearing in mind their longevity, they must be the best two players I`ve had. They have both been here as long as I have."
