Alex Boss Impressed By Football Man Scholes

19 February 2019

Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell says he was impressed by Paul Scholes when the two managers went head-to-head at the weekend. Artell has understandable respect for the former Manchester United and England International midfielder as a footballer and he expects the 44-year-old to carve out a successful career as a manager.

Crewe collected a deserved point against Scholes’ Oldham side at the weekend and the Alex boss was able to pick his rivals brains a little before boarding the coach home on Saturday evening.

David told the club’s official website: “Paul was terrific I must say. He spoke really well and he is a proper football guy. He wouldn’t have taken the job at this level if he wasn’t.

“I asked him how he had found it and he said that it ‘had been a long week’. I told him to get used to it!

“We spoke about the game, about Salford losing 3-1 and all that stuff. He was a really down to earth, nice guy.

“He was one of the best footballers in the world but you wouldn’t have known it, talking to him in his office. He is a humble guy and I think that speaks volumes. It is a fine quality to have and he was good company. I was impressed with him and wish him well in the job.”
