Both Ben Foster and Tom Cleverley think Paul Scholes was a better player than Cristiano Ronaldo during their time at Manchester United.
Ronaldo moved to Old Trafford when he was just a teenager in 2003 and became one of the best in the world during his six years at the club, scoring 118 goals in 292 appearances under Sir Alex Ferguson before moving on to Real Madrid.
Scholes, on the other hand, spent his whole career at United, making 718 appearances in all competitions and winning 11 Premier League titles and two Champions Leagues.
Speaking to the Squeaky Bum Time podcast Watford pair Foster and Cleverley agreed that Scholes had the edge over the Portuguese superstar while they were United players.
"He's the best player I've ever seen live," Foster said. "Yep [above Cristiano Ronaldo]. He was effortless, everything just came so naturally to him.
"Striking a ball, if you could see him strike a ball, he didn't miss any part of the ball, it was all full, 100 per cent contact with the ball.
"He was beautiful, he was a beautiful player to watch."
Cleverley added: "He was just two or three steps ahead of everything. He would never misplace a pass, he would just mentally torture you in the middle of the park.
