Fans have reacted to the technical ability on show and they're full of praise for the diminutive maestro.
Great comp bro.. I'll keep on saying it nobody I mean no body is and was a better oasser than Scholes

I will always say it, he was the best mix of technical ability and in-game intelligence. Only a few can come close to him.

The 45-year-old possessed a technique that was rare in English midfielders during his career and he was showered with praise from pundits and fellow players alike.
Scholes was a vital part of United's success in the 90's and 00's, winning 11 Premier League titles as well as two Champions Leagues.
He is often compared to former Chelsea and Liverpool stars and international teammates Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.
All three men were influential for their club sides in their career - but the debate on who was the best still rages on.
Scholes himself admitted he is sick of the debate but put his former Three Lions teammates ahead of himself.
"Stevie G and Frank, of course," the 45-year-old told BBC 5 Live's Savage Social when asked who is the best.
"I'm sick to death of hearing about this, to be honest. It doesn't really matter. People can have their own opinions.
"Them two were amazing, amazing players. But very different players."
