Paul Scholes maintains that Manchester United would have won five or six European Cups in some other era than the one that they played in.
“We were really quite unlucky. We could have won four, five, or six European Cups in any other era,” said the Red Devils legend to the A Goal in One Podcast.
He regretted the “ridiculous” defeat of Manchester United in the Champions League because of the spectacular form that Real Madrid and Barcelona were in:
“However, the players who were there-you are staring at the Barcelona squad from Guardiola. God, how nice were they?!
“Through the team you could go right. You have Andres Iniesta, Xavi, Sergio Busquets and Lionel Messi at midfield. Henry is on the left. Centre halves of Gerard Pique and Carlos Puyol. Just impossible.
They are without a doubt the best team against which I have played. They are one of the best teams that ever existed.”
