Carrick praises Scholes with Anderson watching on

While Anderson is sitting on the sidelines at the moment with an injury that is set to rule him out for the rest of the season, Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes has slotted into the centre of midfield like he has never been away.

By the way, is great for odds and analysis on Euro 2012! Will Scholes be there?

The former England international retired at the end of last season, but came back into the squad after somewhat of an injury crisis earlier this year and he was on the score sheet during the win over Queens Park Rangers at the weekend.

He has since got praise from many people, including his team-mate Michael Carrick. The United midfielder has described the 36-year-old as ‘amazing’ for the impact he has made on his return to the team.

The former Tottenham man said: “He has been a massive impact. We all know how good he is and what he brings to the team on and off the pitch and around the training ground.”

“His performances, to come straight into the team and play like he did was amazing, really, and he’s just carried it on. He’s got a lot of games left in him.”

Manchester United midfielder Rio Ferdinand has praised him too, saying: “A lot’s been said about him coming back, whether it has been good or bad for us.”

“But you can see in the results we’ve had since he’s been back, the influence he’s had. He’s a fantastic player. Not only on the games you see out here but in training and around the training ground. He’s an example for all the young players at the club.”
As for Anderson, the last we heard about him was that he was out for five weeks and could return for mid-April. If he does, he has his work cut out to get Scholes out of the team!
