 You can't stop getting old unfortunately but you can do your best and he does his best every time he goes on the field. He's scored an important goal at the end of the season [against Manchester City] which would have won the league and he scored a fantastic goal at the weekend. He's just a magical passer of the ball and a model professional footballer. I'm very happy with Paul Scholes, he is sensational.
