David Beckham Asked Who Was Better Out Of Paul Scholes And Zinedine Zidane
The 45-year-old Manchester United legend played alongside Scholes during their time at Old Trafford and on the international stage with England.
And Beckham would later have the opportunity to share the pitch with Zidane after completing his stunning switch from United to Real Madrid in 2003.
The ex-Red Devils and Los Blancos star admitted that it was "hard to separate the two of them," but he added their "talent is undeniable."
Beckham told Squawka: "It's really hard to separate the two of them because they're both quiet in character, but when you get them on the field, their talent is undeniable in both ways.
"I was lucky enough to obviously grow up with Scholesy and then I was lucky enough to go on to Real Madrid and be able to play for three years with probably the best player I have ever played with [Zidane]."

Zidane, who has since become Madrid manager, enjoyed an illustrious playing career both at club level and in international football.
Meanwhile, Scholes experienced a trophy-laden career with United and is widely regarded as one of the best midfielders in history.
Zidane, 48, has previously admitted that one of his regrets is that he never had the chance to play alongside the United legend in professional football.
"It's only natural to want to select your best players and there is no doubt for me that Paul Scholes is still in a class of his own," he told The Daily Mirror.
"He's almost untouchable in what he does. I never tire of watching him play. You rarely come across the complete footballer, but Scholes is as close to it as you can get.
"One of my regrets is that the opportunity to play alongside him never presented itself during my career."
