Blackburn boss Hughes: Man Utd’s Scholes just as good as Ronaldo

He said: “I don’t think he has been overshadowed by Ronaldo – certainly not in football circles. Since Scholes came back from his eye injury he has been sensational.

“He has had an influence on every game I’ve seen him play in and he was one of United’s better players against us.

“Even when they aren’t playing particularly well there are always situations where the individual talent they have comes out.

“And if you get good players like Scholes in decent areas you know he’s likely to produce an end product.”
