Paul Scholes names two clubs he would have considered playing for during his active years; the English International played for only Manchester United.
Manchester United had one of the most talented and loyal players from its class of 92, one of them is Paul Scholes, who gave his whole career to the Red Devils under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson.
But recently, according to a report by the Manchester Evening News, Paul Scholes has revealed that there were two clubs during his playing years, where he would have considered playing except for Manchester United.
“It is a bit far fetched,” Scholes joked when asked on the Savage Social. “I never had any intention or any ambition to play for anyone else. I was at the biggest club in the world, I was with all of my mates, playing good football and winning trophies. I never had any intention.”
“The clubs I’d like to abroad, Barcelona the big club in Spain, and I always liked AC Milan as well in Italy. I think it was more the kit than anything, the red and black stripes and the white shorts! And the players. he further said.
“We used to watch Italian football growing up, and you think of (Franco) Baresi, (Paolo) Maldini, (Roberto) Donadoni and (Carlo) Ancelotti. (Marco) Van Basten centre forward, Ruud Gullit as well, an unbelievable team. So if I had to, never wanted to, Barcelona or AC Milan.”
Scholes was one of the most prolific midfielders of the last generation and it would have been interesting to see him paired up with Xavi and Iniesta during Pep Guardiola era.
Whereas, AC Milan was a dominant side during his peak years. Surely, he would have been a great addition to AC Milan side led by Ancelotti, and any day the English International would have walked into the playing XI of both teams.
