Man Utd’s Scholes: Ronaldo hottest player around

Scholes told the BBC’s Football Focus: “The amount of goals and the amount of assists he’s had has been frightening.

“I haven’t seen anybody take players on, score goals and make goals like he has in this first half of the season, so he rightfully deserves that tag.”

He added: “We just hope that for the second half of the season he can have the same effect on the team that he’s had in the first half. We’re sure he can do that.”
