Bruno Fernandes settles the age long Frank Lampard vs Paul Scholes debate

The argument of who was the better midfielder between Frank Lampard, Paul Scholes and Steven Gerrard, has lasted for many years, during their playing career, and even now that they have since retired, the talks haven’t died down but has rather intensified.

Paul Scholes has always been a level ahead of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard, and United midfielder Bruno Fernandes, wasn’t shy to point that out.

Speaking on the Utd podcast, Fernandes said: “I think Scholes was one of the best midfielders in the world.

“For England, a lot of people talk about Frank Lampard because he scored a lot of goals of course, one of the best in England too, you have Steven Gerrard too.

“But I think Scholes is the one who makes more difference than anyone else.

“And before everyone starts talking about this, I haven’t seen every midfielder in England…

“But I think in the last generation, those three were the three best ones, and for me Scholes was best.”

Bruno Fernandes believes his playing style is closer to Scholes than Lampard and Gerrard.

“Maybe I’m closer to Paul Scholes than the rest of them,” Fernandes added.

“Scholes was a guy who likes to be in the box, who likes to give an assist, who likes to score a lot of goals.”
