“Scholesy is just incredible and it’s a privilege to be in the same squad,” said Nani. “I said to him the other day in training: ‘Scholesy, you should have stayed at home because you are playing alone.’ What I mean is that he makes a pass to one wing, goes to support and gets the ball. Then he makes a pass to the other wing, goes to support and gets the ball again. All the time he’s in control of the play. The other team don’t get near the ball, even in training. They are playing just against him! He’s the best midfielder I’ve ever seen. He can pass, score goals with his left, right, his head. He can do anything. And he can beat a player too, plus he loves to nutmeg you! He’s unbelievable.”
