- Scholes is considered by many as the best central midfielder of his generation.
- He made over 700 appearances during his 18-year career at Old Trafford.
- The Englishman has named Luka Modric and Toni Kroos when asked which modern players remind him of himself.
"I'd like to think I played a little bit like Luka Modric," the Englishman, who's considered by many as the best central midfielder of his generation, told BBC.
"He's different to me because he was quicker than me, he can beat a man, but I see certain traits in him, like controlling a game.
"It's probably more towards Toni Kroos, as a passer and more of a controlling player. He doesn't really get involved physically with people and scores the odd goal here and there. I think if I had to choose between the two I'd be more like Kroos than Modric.
"When I watch those two for Real Madrid in those great European Cup-winning teams, they're the two."
Scholes retired from football in 2013 after making over 700 appearances during his 18-year career at Old Trafford.
Funnily enough, Modric and Kross were mentioned as United's priority targets to replace the Englishman before his retirement but both snubbed a move to Manchester in favour of the Bernabeu switch.
