Paul Scholes builds his perfect footballer and picks two current Man United players
| Last updated
Paul Scholes was tasked with building his "perfect footballer" and picked two current Manchester United stars.
The Premier League legend took part in the feature for United's official website and could only pick players who had played for the Red Devils.
He singled out start for certain traits and qualities to create the complete player, giving props to many of his former United colleagues but also selecting a couple of Erik ten Hag's key men.
Scholes had to choose a total of 10 players and gave new captain Bruno Fernandes the nod for vision, praising the Portugal international for his versatility.
"Bruno I would have to say. We had a lot of good players in my team - Giggsy's vision was brilliant, David Beckham, but now I think it's close between [Christian] Eriksen and Bruno.
"I think what Bruno has been doing for a couple of years now is he sees everything on a football pitch. He plays in that position and he's actually played a bit deeper.I love him in that role, I'm not sure it's a role he would do year after year. I think he would like to get back into that No.10."
And when it came to pace, Scholes simply had to opt for the speed demon Marcus Rashford, who recently signed a new contract extension at United.
"I don't think there's many quicker than Marcus, is there? Andy Cole as well in tight little areas where he had to sprint and really have an eye for a goal.
Scholes picked the right foot of David Beckham and the left of Ryan Giggs, while also making the "easy" call to go for Ruud van Nistelrooy when it came to finishing.
"Absolute beast" Jaap Stam received recognition for strength, with Roy Keane and Nicky Butt winning mentality and tackling respectively.
Cristiano Ronaldo claimed both heading and skills.
