Paul Scholes Produces Outrageous 'No-Look' Pass During Vincent Kompany's Testimonial

Go and grab yourself a hot drink, find a comfy chair and get ready to appreciate one of the best midfielder's of all time.

I'm talking about Manchester United great Paul Scholes, a 44-year-old old man who gave the world another utterly sublime performance at the Etihad on Wednesday night, this time during Vincent Kompany's testimonial.

Representing the Premier League all-star XI alongside former teammates Ryan Giggs, Michael Carrick and Robin van Perise, he ran the show from midfield, spraying passes from the first minute to the last.


He seriously wouldn't look out of place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's current side, and a moment in the 57th minute proves that fact.

Scholes found former teammate Van Persie with an audacious 'no look' pass, leaving opponent Joleon Lescott in a state of confusion as he effortlessly walked away like nothing had happened.

Seriously, I can't stop watching this.

And if you can't get enough, like me, here is that silly pass from another angle.

It was an entertaining testimonial to say the least, and it only took a matter of seconds for Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher to have a go at each other.

The Sky Sports pundits, known for winding each other up on Monday Night Football, were playing for the Premier League all-stars XI on Wednesday night.

And it didn't take long for the pair to have words with each other.

It looked like Neville was at fault for Manchester City's first goal, scored by Bulgarian winger Martin Petrov.

Neville, who decided to step up and play offside, complained that his teammate should have been deeper, a statement that baffled fellow pundit Carragher.

"Go with the man!" he shouted before the pair trudged back to the half-way line.

Can we do this every week, please?
