Bruno Fernandes has stated clearly that he wants to emulate Manchester United legend Paul Scholes claiming that the Englishman was better than Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard.

During their active playing time, these three players were super brilliant for their clubs and even the England national team.

Steven Gerrard captained reigning Premier League champions, Liverpool, for many years where he won the Champions League but never won the English topflight title.

The 40-year-old between 1998 and 2015 played 505 games for Liverpool and scored 120 goals before moving to LA Galaxy where he played 34 games with 5 goals.

According to the report on UK Sun, Bruno Fernandes explained that these three players were great, but he will pick Paul Scholes as the best.

''I think Scholes is the one who makes more difference than anyone else. And before everyone starts talking about this, I haven’t seen every midfielder in England...
"But I think in the last generation, those three were the three best ones, and for me Scholes was best."
