Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has bashed Liverpool striker Luis Suarez ahead of England’s World Cup clash against Uruguay, Daily Star reports.
The Three Lions face Uruguay in a must win clash to progress to the knock-out stages and former English international Paul Scholes is adding to the rivalry.
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.”
