Paul Scholes names the Manchester United legends who ‘loved’ arguing with Sir Alex Ferguson

Paul Scholes revealed Ryan Giggs and David Beckham ‘loved’ answering back to Sir Alex Ferguson during their days at Manchester United. Scholes, like Gary Neville, would normally take any verbal assault from his manager on the chin but Giggs and Beckham took a very different stance.

Former United and England midfielder Scholes recalled the first time he did answer back to Ferguson, in an away soccer tip game against Newcastle where he’d come off the bench to help the team fight back before attempting a backheel on the halfway line, which led to a goal for Alan Shearer. And while Scholes’ reaction to a grilling from his manager was out of character, he revealed that for some of his other esteemed team-mates, it was common place.

‘But for this one occasion I thought it was merited, I thought I’d made a little bit of a difference to the team, got us back into the game really. ‘Some people loved arguing with him. Giggsy is one. He can’t keep his mouth shut, whether he’s right or wrong it doesn’t matter. ‘Beckham was the same. He’d always have a pop back but I’d never say a word.’

Asked what Gary Neville was like, tips free soccer he added: ‘He just took it most of the time. I was the same. ‘But this one time I didn’t agree with him.

But he put his arm around me and said, “Look I’m sorry about Saturday. I was wrong, you made a difference.”
