Paul Scholes admits it's important for a footballer to have 'a bit of nastiness'
• Arsene Wenger once said that the legendary United midfielder had 'a darker side' to him
Reflecting on Wenger's comments, the 43-year-old said: "When we played Arsenal, they were such a good footballing team that you had to get about them, and sometimes they didn't like that.
"The team of Vieira and Petit was a bit different; a bit tougher, physically and mentally.
"I don't know what he means about a darker side, but a bit of nastiness is not a bad thing.
"I was slightly dark, but not too dark!"
