‘World’s best ever passer’ Paul Scholes has less assists in the Premier League and the Champions League than James Milner!

That’s not an opinion, that’s a simple fact, as tweeted out by our friends at SPORF last night.

In fact, Milner currently leads the assist charts in this season’s Champions League, with seven in just five starts!
What an underrated footballer. His performance against Manchester City was exceptional, too, showing an insane work-rate, heart and the ability to create, as well.
Scholes was a fantastic midfielder, but it’s wrong that he’s compared directly to Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard. In fact, there’s much more fanfare about Scholes since he’s retired than there ever was when he was playing – which says what you need to know about United’s need to mythologise him.
