Scholes is a legend, says Man U teammate Fletcher
London, Apr 21 (ANI): Hailing Manchester United teammate Paul Scholes performance, midfielder Darren Fletcher has described him as a legend.
Scholes scored United's last-gasp winner in the derby victory over bitter rivals Manchester City on Saturday.
Fletcher said: "We won't ever see another one like Paul Scholes. He is a legend and a real benchmark. He is not interested in the modern day footballer's life off the pitch, but he is a world-class player on it."
"He has probably never really got the true recognition he deserved outside of Manchester United because he never did the media. He didn't do interviews and never put himself out for things like that," The Sun quoted him, as saying.
"I cannot believe he has never been nominated for World, European or domestic individual honours because in his prime he was scoring 20 goals a season from midfield," he said.
"It is astonishing he has never won a personal award but given the choice of winning something and then having to get up and do the speech, I think he would rather not have won them," Fletcher added.
There were rumours that Scholes could have retired at the end of the season.
"It is crazy to suggest that he shouldn't have got another contract. On Saturday he was the best player on the park. Even before his goal he was controlling it at his tempo," Fletcher said. (ANI)
