The England captain has picked out two stars who have most stood out to him during his 12 years at Old Trafford as he prepares to play his testimonial against Everton

Wayne Rooney has named Paul Scholes and Cristiano Ronaldo as the two best team-mates he has played with at Manchester United.

The 30-year-old moved to Old Trafford in 2004 and won multiple Premier League titles as well as the Champions League with Scholes and Ronaldo alongside him.

The England captain also played in teams including the likes of Ryan Giggs, Roy Keane, Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic but says the Englishman and Portuguese's talent trumps the rest.

"I'd say there are two that stand out and they’re Paul Scholes and Cristiano Ronaldo," Rooney told his official website.

"Paul Scholes is one of the best midfielders of all time. His passing, vision and the way he controlled the tempo of games was incredible.

"Cristiano is a special player and he has gone on to be one of the best in the world.

"Some of the things he used to do in training and then take into games was unbelievable, he’ll always be remembered as one of the greats of the game."
