Video: United Legend Believes Memphis Can Emulate Cristiano Ronaldo

If Scholes believes in you, then you must be in with a shout.

Paul Scholes and Andy Cole were on the Fletch & Sav BT Sport show, and the pair mused on their former club Manchester United.

Many have been Walking in Memphis since the Dutchman’s impressive brace against Club Brugge in midweek.

Scholes has been singing the praises of the young winger, and believes that he can bring the excitement back to Old Trafford, just as Cristiano Ronaldo did in his day.

Scholes feels like United have been like “watching paint dry” in recent seasons, and that the talents of the former PSV star can rectify this.

Far from his reserved demeanour as a player, Scholes has been a rather outspoken pundit since hanging up his boots, and he continues in this vein by deriding Louis Van Gaal’s cautious approach, characterised by a recent lack of goals and risk taking.

Again, there are not many better qualified to speak on the subject.
