Paul Scholes does a zing on Man City and Liverpool
Shaky footage of one of Scholes’ fave’ mo’s
There is one member of Spoiler HQ who is convinced that the reason Paul Scholes never does interviews and never talks is because Manchester United won’t let him. His theory goes that Scholes is such a horrible man that the thought of him being allowed to speak to anyone in the media absolutely terrifies the United hierarchy.
Anyway, Scholes had this to say about City ahead of their FA Cup semi final clash this weekend:
“When they’re fourth or fifth, or wherever they are in the League, I don’t think they can be classed as a main rival.
“Our main rivals are obviously Arsenal and Chelsea. I think City are just a rival because of where they are – Liverpool are the same.
However, he did go on to rather urinate on his own chips by going on about how much the games mean to him…
Speaking in The Guardian, he continued:
“Are they more of a threat? Probably, because of the money that they’ve spent on players. They’ve gone up a level and it’s probably made us concentrate a little bit more than we normally would.
“Because they haven’t been as big a club as us, it’s the underdog thing in that there’s never been much pressure on them going into derby games. It was a no-win game for us.”
Before adding this about his injury time winner against City last season:
“It was perfect. It was a major highlight of my career, one of the best things I’ve ever done. To score in a Manchester derby is brilliant anyway, but to score a winning goal in the third minute of injury-time was special.
“They’ll obviously be p*ssed off that they’ve only managed to beat us once, and that was a first leg. We’ve nicked the games in the last minutes. Wayne also did it with his unbelievable goal in the League this season and City were definitely unlucky that day.
“Maybe that’s the difference. We have a belief that we can beat anybody. I’m not sure City have that.”
The Spoiler is now really, really looking forward to the game tomorrow. Really.
