EPL: Rooney names best player between Gerrard, Scholes, Lampard

Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney, has given his opinions on who is better between Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Paul Scholes.

It is a debate that is as popular as the Lionel Messi-Cristiano Ronaldo rivalry in world football.

Rooney, who lined up alongside all three players, gave his opinion while answering questions on The Overlap.

The new Plymouth Argyle manager broke down each man’s credentials before revealing his pick.

He said: “As an all-rounder, Stevie is the best; he can defend, pass the ball, run, tackle, score goals, and set pieces.

“From a goalscoring point of view, Lamps [Frank Lampard] was the best. Technically he wasn’t at Stevie or Scholesy’s level, but there was no one better at scoring goals from midfield.

“Scholesy, the way he adapted [made him amazing]. I don’t think either of the other two [Gerrard or Lampard] could dictate a game the way he could.

“All were world-class players. Stevie could come to Manchester United and be a top player and do what Scholes could do. But I don’t think Scholes could do what Stevie did at Liverpool.”
