Scholes claimed that during his time at Old Trafford, United never had to worry about the Uruguayan before blasting that he was also a selfish and lucky player.

He wrote in his Paddy Power Blog: “In 2012/2013 Suarez was pretty selfish and missed too many chances for Liverpool.

“Thinking of my time at Man United we didn’t worry about Suarez much.

“He’d barely get a kick at Old Trafford and I don’t remember any specific strategy to try to stop him playing, like we did with Park Ji-Sung on Andrea Pirlo in the Champions League, for example.

“Suarez is a lucky player. The ball seems to bounce off him into the right place. Luck or skill – he gets breaks other forwards don’t.”

Scholes did however compliment on his ability to adapt his game last season, resulting in Liverpool finishing runners-up in the Premier League – scoring 31 goals in the process.

“Last season Suarez changed his game and wasn’t just thinking about himself. It made him a better player, especially in his partnership with Daniel Sturridge.”
