‘Brilliant’ – Paul Scholes’ favourite ex-Manchester United pundit

2 min read

Paul Scholes has named Roy Keane and Gary Neville as his favourite ex-Manchester United pundits.

The media scene is now awash with former players from Old Trafford across BT Sport, Sky Sports, the BBC and other various platforms.

Scholes has forged a career on BT and with Premier League Productions as a respected pundit, alongside the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Michael Owen, Owen Hargreaves and others.

Sky, meanwhile, have Keane, Neville, Patrice Evra and others have featured such as Dwight Yorke.

When quizzed on his favourite out of those currently in the media world, Scholes admitted Neville and Keane are leading the way.

“Gary or Roy, I’d have to say. I was the best player but the worst pundit. I think he’s brilliant, he’s been brilliant for years. Then the honesty, the brutality of Roy, is brilliant, it’s so entertaining,” he told talkSPORT 2.

“When he’s on, I’m desperate to watch as everyone else is. Roy was just as he was (in the dressing room) as he is on telly. He’ll just tell you how it is.”

Scholes will be in the studio for BT when Manchester United face Granada on Thursday in the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final.

United lead 2-0 after victory in Spain last week and look likely to face AS Roma after they beat Ajax 2-1 away from home in their first leg.

Though a test with the Serie A side would be tricky, it’s a tie Scholes expects United to come through on route to winning the competition.

“It’s a big exciting game, I’m looking forward to it,” Scholes said.

“It’s a vitally important game for him (Solkjaer). Of course, the previous game, United played well, you go to any team in Europe and win and it’s a good result.

“Granada weren’t the strongest of oppositions but they’ve got to a quarter-final, give them credit.

“United, they’ve got a great chance. It’ll be Ajax or Roma in the semi-final, looking likely it will be Roma. That will be difficult, you have to give teams like Roma great respect but I think Man United have the best squad, the best team left in the competition and it should be something Ole is desperate to win.”
