I’ve not felt like that for a long time in football and that’s not over egging it. I felt like a kid again in a football ground. I’ve never seen Scholesy jump so high in celebration in my life.”Anthony Johnson, who manages the first-team along with fellow coach Bernard Morley, added: “When the final whistle went, you had Gary Neville and Nicky Butt part of the pitch invasion like normal fans and Scholesy is dancing and singing in the changing room – I’m sure it was Rick Astley he was singing in there.“It matters to them like it does to normal fans. We’re under no illusions that we’ve got to win games but we’re enjoying it and working for five of the best players this country has ever produced.“But I thought for 90 per cent of the game we dominated it.“I don’t want that to sound arrogant or brash but we felt we were the better side.” Manchester United Paul Scholes last_img read more
