(Video) ‘That miskick’: Paul Scholes gives hilarious reaction to Barcelona wonder goal 13 years on

Paul Scholes gave a hilariously understated response when reminded it was the 13th anniversary of one of the most special European nights at Old Trafford.

As noted in BT Sport’s pre-match coverage of United’s Europa League semi-final against Roma, it’s 13 years since the day Scholes scored a screamer against Barcelona to send the Reds through to the final against Chelsea in Moscow.

Scholes was the match-winner against the Barcelona side considered the greatest of its generation, and it was a spectacular strike.

But the United legend was humble when asked by presenter Jake Humphrey about the goal, stating that it was just a ‘miskick’ and that he didn’t mean to hit the ball as he did.

Scholes struck across the ball and it flew beyond a helpless Victor Valdes into the top corner.

But the former midfielder branded the goal ‘lucky’ and the contact wasn’t his initial intention.
