“Paul Scholes is a top player,” said Milner. “As someone lucky enough to be an England player and an England fan you want the best players out there. He has been one of the best midfielders in the Premier League since it started. It is down to England and the manager but to get the chance to play with him would be unbelievable. He is still doing it now, which is a testament to his professionalism and how well he has looked after himself. If he came into the England set-up again it would be fantastic.”
