Paul Scholes admits he was close to TEARS when Man United were dramatically pipped to the 2011-12 title by Man City thanks to Sergio Aguero’s heroics against QPR… as he claims he saw their neighbours as bigger rivals than Liverpool

  • Man United legend Paul Scholes revealed his heartbreak of losing the 11-12 title 
  • The Red Devils were pipped to the crown by Man City in dramatic fashion  
  • Scholes said he was nearly in tears after Sergio Aguero’s late winner vs QPR  

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has revealed he was close to tears after the club were dramatically pipped to the Premier League title by rivals Manchester City in the 2011-12 season. 

Sergio Aguero fired in a last-gasp winner in stoppage time against QPR in one of the most iconic moments in top flight history to ensure City won their first ever league crown, with United’s 1-0 win over Sunderland not enough to bring the trophy home.

United’s players were pictured looking glum on the pitch at the Stadium of Light knowing their efforts were for nothing despite Wayne Rooney’s strike putting them top of the table – with City 2-1 down – before Edin Dzeko levelled for the Citizens and Aguero broke United’s hearts.

Speaking to old team-mate Gary Neville on Overlap Xtra, courtesy of SkyBet, he said: ‘I nearly cried. It made it worse, because City playing QPR, we just didn’t think it would be a problem. We went to Sunderland thinking it don’t matter.

‘We didn’t think we’d won the league [at full-time],’ he added. ‘You don’t think like that, do you?’

‘All I knew growing up was you’re either a City fan or a United fan, so that was probably why [the City games felt bigger],’ Scholes explained when pressed on the matter by Neville. ‘

‘Liverpool was a big game but City was always the one for me.’

The Red Devils were left heartbroken having done their part by beating Sunderland 1-0

Also speaking on the Overlap, Scholes revealed his famous Champions League strike against Barcelona in the 2008 Champions League semi-final was actually a mis-hit.

He replied: ‘That was a miskick. It was a miskick, it came off the outside of my foot.

‘If you’re trying to hit it that way with a bit of fade, it should go outside the post and then in the corner really. 

‘I was thinking of just hitting the target to be honest with you. When it goes towards the keeper and that way [swerving to the right], you don’t mean that, no chance.’

Neville appeared shocked by Scholes’ explanation, and asked his ex-team-mate if he would at least concede that it was his most important strike.

‘It was the most important, yeah,’ Scholes acknowledged.
