To pick the best midfielder in world football is nearly impossible, and even when narrowing it down to just Gerrard, Lampard and Scholes, picking one is not an easy task. I’m sure there has been many bar fights over which English midfielder is the best. Deco, a legendary Portuguese midfielder himself has his say on the matter:
“I played with and against so many fantastic players in midfield like Gerrard,” Deco told Squawka. “I had the opportunity to play with Lampard together at Chelsea. I think, because he was a different type of player to all other types of English midfielder, Paul Scholes was the best player that I saw playing for an English midfield and one of the best players in the world.”
The ex-Chelsea star added that England’s current generation could be missing someone like Scholes.
“Maybe it’s the generation, but I think this kind of player always exists. England has a lot of fantastic players. What I say is that in midfield, with his style Scholes could play at any club.”
