Some things in life are so rare it’s easy to forget they ever happen at all. A Man City trophy win, Fernando Torres’ goal, Gary Neville saying R20;I don’t know about that tobe honest,” are prime examples.
Even rarer is a Paul Scholes interview, such is the nature of the quiet little maestro that he prefers to let his football do the talking, which in the era of footballers sticking their noses into everything and anything that doesn’t concern them, is a refreshing change.
Wayne Rooney’s treatment by the English press following the 18-30’s holiday some people misguidedly refer to as England’s World Cup campaign, has irked the Ginger Prince somewhat.
Speaking to United Review Scholes’ said:
R20;He [Rooney] has received stick ever since the World Cup.
R20;It seems as though he has been made a scapegoat for what happened, and that isn’t right when there are 22 other players in the England squad.
R20;But Wayne showed at West Ham why he plays for us every week.
R20;He showed what he is capable of doing and gave a match-winning performance.”
Scholes who started against Fulham yesterday, hasn’t figured much of late due to a combination of injury and Sir Alex Ferguson giving others a a chance but there’s no doubt that for the most imprtant seven to ten games since ooh, this time last season, United are going to need the quiet man just as much as they will Rooney.
Many will look at United’s central midfield as something of a weak spot but with Michael Carrick showing the sort of form we know hr’s capable of against Chelsea, Darren Fletcher set to return following his virus and Anderson back in the squad, add Scholes to the mix and things look a lot brighter than some have argued.
