Manchester United legend Paul Scholes feels that there are similarities between Liverpool talisman Luis Suarez and Juventus striker Carlos Tevez.

Scholes played alongside Tevez at Manchester United, before the Argentine departed Old Trafford to move to the club's rivals Manchester City.

And in Suarez, who scored 31 goals in the Premier League this season as Liverpool finished second, Scholes feels he can see shades of Tevez.

"As for facing Luis Suarez – he’s a nuisance", Scholes, writing on his Paddy Power blog, warned England, who must face Suarez's Uruguay in the World Cup.


"Last season his chance conversion improved beyond anyone’s expectations.

"He didn’t seem as selfish.

"Playing against him, he never lets you rest and reminds me of Carlos Tevez whom I played with at United."
