‘I tried to play like Kroos’ – Scholes

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has revealed he tried to emulate Toni Kroos’ style of play near the end of his career.

Scholes, who’s final match before retirement came in May 2013, also believes the 27-year-old Real Madrid midfielder would be the ‘perfect’ fit at Old Trafford.

"I really like Toni Kroos. When I neared the end of my career, I followed him closely and tried to play like Kroos," Scholes told German publication Kicker.

"I was a midfielder with an eye for the goal, but Kroos is one of the best midfield masterminds in the world.

"Kroos would be perfect at United next to Pogba and Ander Herrera."
