Watch: Paul Scholes Struggles To Hide Glee At Steven Gerrard's Lack Of PL Medals

Whoever produces BT Sport's live Champions League football may just be the person England needed in charge of the Golden Generation: they have shunted Steven Gerrard out to the side to accommodate Paul Scholes in the centre.

Scholes is sitting between Gerrard and Rio Ferdinand on BT's coverage of Benfica/Man United tonight, as the three English legends preview a game which could effectively seal United's passage to the last 16.

During the pre-game analysis, Gerrard continued his public admiration for Jose Mourinho, swallowing his negative Anfield tactics as the corollary of winning titles. Stevie G came at it from his position as having never won the title, and with a history of thrilling failures littering his Premier League careers, Gerrard could see Mourinho's tactics for the miserably effective gameplan that it is.


As Gerrard mentioned his lack of winners medals, the camera cut to Paul Scholes, who struggled to avoid smirking.

Watch it below.

Scholes meanwhile maintained his shtick regarding United's style of play, believing that performances like the one at Liverpool will not convince supporters:

I don't think the fans will be totally happy with that. Having gone three or four years without challenging for the league, maybe they will accept that for now. Further on, I don't think that will be acceptable. He has to find a way of winning these big games away from home. It's such a psychological advantage to go and beat them, and United haven't been able to do that for a couple of years now.

Gerrard disagreed:

I have to disagree there. If United do go on to win the league, there'll be enough games in which they turn it on and wipe the floor with teams, we might look back and say that was a really good point at Liverpool. It might prove to be the point that clinches it for them.

Maybe these guys are different, they have won many leagues in exciting teams, but speaking has someone who has never won the league, I see it more as clever management and being clever tactically if you go on to win it.
