Young Gary Neville And Paul Scholes Interviews Are Hilariously Bad
Gary Neville and Paul Scholes are now two of the most prominent pundits on television. However interviews from their days as youth products at Manchester United prove that wouldn't have been an obvious career path.
Nowadays you struggle to turn on a game of football without either a former Liverpool or former Manchester United player giving their opinion on whatever match is being played.
For United's old pros Gary Neville and Paul Scholes are the most prominent members of the punditry table. Neville because he's just very good at it, especially with his partner in crime Jamie Carragher, and Scholes because he's so forthrite about the Red Devils.
When they were players there's a good chance you wouldn't have expected them to end up on the television talking about the football.
Scholes barely seemed to talk and even Neville wasn't exactly the most interesting of characters in his post match interviews, but then again which footballers are.
As if to prove the point both men can be seen in this video from their United youth days trying to get through an interview. Neville is as dull as anything and Scholes can, as previously stated, barely talk:
Scholes there can't really get through a sentence about his performance without making a mistake, cracking up or simply landing a typical cliche about it being the team's performance not just his.
The midfield maestro was always better at doing his talking on the pitch whilst remaining pretty much silent off it, rarely speaking to the press.
How Jose Mourinho wishes that was still the case, just the other week he laid into the United boss and called said the under fire manager was 'embarrassing.'
"I am sat here surprised he's here after Saturday," he said.
"He's coming out in press conferences, having a go at players, people above him. I think his mouth is out of control and he's embarrassing the club."

From not being able to get a word out to one of the most outspoken pundits on television, who would have seen it coming?
