Paul Scholes: England Need To Adopt The Spanish Way

Retired midfielder Paul Scholes has insisted that England are miles behind Spain in terms of keeping possession of the football, Scholes suggests the English players need adopt they way the team works as a unit.

In England the tactics are normally set out to get the ball down and run adopting an aggressive approach when tackling.

But with the way the Spaniard's play, you can hardly get anywhere near them.

The way the Spaniards pass the ball around, making teams chase them down to regain possession puts them head and shoulders above the rest, Spain’s Under 21’s dominated play against England in last night’s 1-1 draw in the European U21 Championship keeping possession for most of the game.

England's opponents dominating possession in a way in which has become the hallmark of Spanish sides and the former England player feels this is way the game should be played.

Scholes has also revealed that Alex Ferguson has asked him to prolong his career in an attempt to keep him play for United for as long as he can,

The 36-year-old won 10 Premier League titles with United, announced his retirement in May.

Scholes added; "The manager felt I could do 15 to 20 games next season.

"Physically I was not feeling great in training or the games towards the end of the season. I came to this decision which I think is the right one." Best Blogger Tips
