2. Late breakthrough
Although Scholes was identified by none other than Sir Alex Ferguson as a superb talent, he did not make his first team debut until some time.
Ryan Giggs had already established himself as a first teamer in the 1991-92 season. Gary Neville, Nicky Butt and David Beckham made their first team debuts in 1992-93. Scholes, however had to wait till 1994-95, when he burst onto the scene with 7 goals in 25 appearances.
