Scholes: This is the best Manchester United player I ever played with

The former United and England midfielder also revealed the one man he wishes he could have teamed up with.

Paul Scholes has played with a huge amount of world-class players during his time as a Manchester United player.

Eric Cantona, Cristiano Ronaldo and more - the list is endless.

One, however, stands out for the former United and England midfielder, who now works for various news outlets as a member of the football media.

Indeed, during an impromptu Q + A on Phil Neville's Twitter feed, Scholes agreed to answer fans' questions for a five-minute period.

He was asked what his favourite Man United moment was (the 1999 treble-winning season), what his favourite ever goal was (away at Aston Villa) and then who the best ever player he played alongside was.

And his answer was Ryan Giggs.

Giggs is now Louis van Gaal's assistant at Old Tafford, having taken caretaker charge of Manchester United when David Moyes was sacked last season.

During an illustrious playing career in Manchester, the Welshman spent 24 years as a United player.

But there is one man Scholes would have wanted to join himself and 40-year-old Giggs: Zinedine Zidane.

Zidane enjoyed an illustrious career of his own, moving to Juventus and Real Madrid after spells with Cannes and Bordeaux in France.

The Frenchman won league titles in Italy and Spain, while he also won the Champions League during his time in Madrid - as well as the Ballon d'Or in 1998.
