Neville: “I remember, you used to go home on the bus from the training ground.”

Scholes: “Three buses.”

Neville: “Three buses was it? On a Friday, you’d have a few pints on the way home before a game on Saturday.”

Scholes: “I know. Crazy, madness.

“Sometimes we’d stay in there until eight or nine at night from half 12, I’m not proud of this, before the A and B teams on a Saturday night.”

Neville: “And you’d still be alright?”

Scholes: “Sometimes. Most of the time, but that was my lifestyle. I was brought up around pubs as a kid.

“Wherever I went with my mum and dad as a kid it involved a pub, whether I was outside the pub kicking a ball against the wall. Kids weren’t allowed in the pubs, so I was just outside waiting for my mum and dad the whole time.

“I remember once, when I was 16, 17 or 18 when I was with the youth team, Eric Harrison rang me dad and said ‘we are a bit worried about Paul’s drinking.”

Neville: “Did they know about it?”

Scholes: “They must have done, I don’t know how. Whether someone grassed me up or not, I don’t know.”

Neville joked: “Probably Phil!”

Scholes: “They said they were a bit worried about my drinking. I remember my dad saying ‘he’s allowed to enjoy himself, isn’t he?’

“I was thinking ‘f***, dad you shouldn’t really be saying that. No, no he’s doesn’t drink.’

“That’s what I was brought up [on]. Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and sometimes on a Monday, was going out.”

Neville: “Were you drinking that many times in the week? I didn’t know that myself.”
