EPL: Thiago Silva hits back at Paul Scholes over Cristiano Ronaldo

312

Chelsea’s Thiago Silva has hit back at Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes for saying that Cristiano Ronaldo would have got the better of him(Silva) had the Portuguese started their Premier League tie on Sunday.

Michael Carrick, the caretaker boss of Manchester United had surprisingly kept Ronaldo on bench during their 1-1 draw against Chelsea.

And Scholes, while running a commentary on Sky Sports, criticised Carrick’s decision to start Ronaldo on the bench and felt that the former Real Madrid star would have thrived against Thiago Silva.

The former England international also claimed that Manchester United have ‘more talent’ than Chelsea.

But Thiago Silva has hit back at Scholes’ claims on Instagram.

In his response to a Chelsea fan’s account that generalised Scholes’ view of Ronaldo and Thiago Silva, the Brazilian defender wrote: ‘It is always easy, especially for those who have stopped playing!’
