Reports are out claiming that Arsenal legend Thierry Henry rates Paul Scholes ahead of Steven Gerrard.
Both Manchester United icon Scholes and Liverpool hero Gerrard dominated midfield at their clubs for more than a decade, but it was the United man who was more vital to his side, the former France striker has argued.
Asked if there were any players, current or former, with whom he would like to have played, the Arsenal legend answered “Paul Scholes”.
“The next one would have been, right behind, very close, Stevie G,” Arsenal’s record scorer told Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football. “But I have to go with Paul Scholes.
“He was just ahead in his head. He made Manchester United tick. Every time we were playing them we needed to find a way to stop him.
“It’s true. I think Stevie G comes really close to him. But Paul Scholes would have to win.”
