Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney picked out two teammates who have stood out for him during his 12 years at Old Trafford.

“I’d say there are two that stand out and they’re Paul Scholes and Cristiano Ronaldo,” Rooney told his official website.

“Paul Scholes is one of the best midfielders of all time. His passing, vision and the way he controlled the tempo of games was incredible.

“And Cristiano is a special player. He has gone on to be one of the best in the world.”

The 30-year-old moved to Old Trafford from Everton in 2004 and has won multiple Premier League titles as well as the Champions League with both Scholes and Ronaldo alongside him.

The England captain also played in teams including the likes of Ryan Giggs, Roy Keane, Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic, however he believes the Englishman and Portuguese’s talent trumps the rest.
