It is not wrongly stated by many that Paul Scholes could still deliver in the Premier League at the age of 44 and he proved it again with an incredible pass in Vincent Kompany's Manchester City testimonial.
Fans were sent home happy after a pretty decent 2-2 game on the night at the Etihad Stadium but there was a moment of genius by the Ginger Prince in the second half that had the whole stadium scratching its head.
Scholes found his former Red Devils' team-mate Robin van Persie with an outrageous 'no-look' pass that left opponent Joleon Lescott utterly baffled.
Here's the video:

Outrageous vision and skill from Paul Scholes...🔥 pic.twitter.com/oju4gfh4O5
Unfortunately, Robin van Persie could not cap this pass off with a goal at the end of the move but fans on Twitter were pretty certain that Scholes still has it in him to continue playing football at the top level.
And well, United fans started their typical insanity by calling out Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sign Scholes (jokingly, of course). Even former team-mate Rio Ferdinand applauded his pal by posting on Twitter, "Scholesy stop it."
Here's a look at how fans reacted to this incredible skill from Scholes:

Because it's a very safe bet that most people on Twitter never saw the guy play. The respect he got from his peers: guys like Xavi, Zidane, Davids just to name those guys, says enough about how good he was.— Pit1971 (@Pit19711) September 11, 2019
Damn that nonchalance! Insane— Anand + (@anandkumarsai) September 11, 2019
Was a player way beyond the era he was playing in ... he’d fit right into the fancy formations just behind the striker.— John Woolnough (@johnwoolnough) September 11, 2019
Far superior to Lampard and Gerrard.
Paul scholes could walk back into uniteds team tomorrow and still be a star player.... more talent in his little finger than some of these over paid kids— ⚒⚒David Newman⚒⚒ (@Davenewman1986) September 11, 2019
