The former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has stated that Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva are the best players in the Premier League, according to The Sun.
Manchester United take on their rivals Manchester City this weekend in the seasons first derby. Both Man Utd and Man City have gotten off to a perfect start in the Premier Leauge having recorded three wins in three games.
“Other than Sergio Aguero, Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva, we don’t have the best players. All the best players are in other countries,” Scholes told The Sun.
“The best players are in Spain, or at Bayern Munich and Juventus.
“We’re linked with big players – Gareth Bale is a top player – but we don’t get them now. Not anymore.
“You never see a Lionel Messi coming over here, you never see a Neymar in the Premier League.”
The Manchester derby has taken on a more important role this season given the managers of the two clubs. Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola endured a frosty relationship while the duo were in La Liga.
The game will be officiated by Mark Clattenburg who also refereed both the UEFA Champions League and Euro 2016 final.
Scholes won the Premier League 11 times under Sir Alex Ferguson.
