Manchester United hero Paul Scholes shows his legendary technique has not left him in a brilliant practice clip on Instagram – and former teammate Rio Ferdinand liked what he saw.
Scholes is considered by many to be one of the greatest midfielders in Premier League history, spending nearly two decades pulling the strings for United.
He racked up 718 appearances during his iconic stint at Old Trafford, recording 152 goals and 75 assists while winning 11 Premier League titles, three FA Cups, two League Cups and as many Champions Leagues.
The 46-year-old has retired for the past eight years, definitely hanging up his boots after returning to help Sir Alex Ferguson win his last title in 2013.
Nevertheless, in a video shared on Instagram, Scholes clearly did not lose any of this famous technique.
The former England star performs a training exercise with his son Arron, who works as a personal trainer and individual football coach.
He first directs a few balls towards Arron bypassing a giant tire, before unleashing two superb shots at the back of the net.

Scholes then refunds the ball to his son on the fly while rounding the tire and finishes another header, before sending a final effort off the goal.
Ferdinand, who has shared a dressing room with Scholes at United for over a decade, couldn’t help but mention his former teammate in the comments section.
The former Red Devils defender simply posted: “Sat Nav !!”
Scholes was given the nickname “Sat Nav” by his United teammates due to his unique ability to find them with a pass from all areas of the pitch.
His training exercise with Arron was in preparation for this year’s Soccer Aid event, in which he will participate on September 4.
