Eric has his say...

On Scholes: "I knew Paul when he was young. He started here with us. He has been a great player. He could play anywhere, midfield, up front, he could score goals, defend, tackle. He could do anything. He is a great player. I am very proud of him."

On returning to Manchester: "I had a great time here and a great time in the city. It's always special to come back, particularly to Old Trafford."

Cantona: Reds will go on

"They are very strong and have a great history, and they work a lot every day so any player can be replaced.

"Paul [Scholes] is still a great player. But I left, Ronaldo left, Hughes left, Beckham left, and United are still one of the best clubs in the world."
