Carlos Tevez rates Manchester United legend Paul Scholes above Andrea Pirlo

by Ben Topliss

Carlos Tevez believes Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is the best player he’s ever played with despite lining up alongside the likes of David Silva, Yaya Toure and Andrea Pirlo.

Tevez moved to Man United from West Ham in 2007 and played with Scholes during two successful years at the club.

At United, the Argentine won two Premier League titles, one Champions League and a League Cup but he eventually moved to Manchester City and then Juventus, but maintains that Scholes is the best he’s played with.

Speaking about his best team-mates, Tevez said: “Playing with Pirlo is such a pleasure, one day I’ll be able to say: ‘I played with Pirlo’.

“The best I’ve played with, however, is Paul Scholes.”

It’s not often United fans can speak about Tevez in a good light but at least he has got his head in check when it comes to choosing the best player he’s lined up with.

Scholes won everything he could have done as a player with United, made 718 appearances for the club, behind only Ryan Giggs and Sir Bobby Charlton, and scored 155 goals. He retired for the second time in 2013. He was a genius, a ginger genius.

United could certainly do with Scholes’ goals at the moment given how weak they look in attack.
