Scholes Claims Local Badminton Trophy Means More Than Club World Cup

Scholes Claims Local Badminton Trophy Means More Than Club World Cup

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has claimed their Club World Cup success meant little.

Liverpool proved victorious over  Brazilian side Flamengo in Qatar last week after Roberto Firmino struck in extra-time to secure a 1-0 win.

For Scholes, however, it is a trophy that was not regarded as important when they won it in 2008 under Sir Alex Ferguson.

“Well you want to win it once you’re there but I don’t think it was ever something that we were desperate to win,” Scholes told BBC Five Live.

Even now if someone said to you ‘What trophies did you win over the years?’ I don’t think we’d mention the World Club Championship.

I really don’t. I’m not joking, I’m serious!

He went on to add things can change.

“But you know what, it’s like anything else, it might take more importance over the years.

“It looks like Liverpool have enjoyed it, they’ve celebrated it and probably will mention it and why not – but just when we were playing it wasn’t that serious I don’t think."

When asked what meant more, success in his local badminton club or the Club World Cup, Scholes replied: "My badminton trophy!"
