The midfield maestro was in exhibition mode for the all-star fixture.

Paul Scholes' reputation as one of England's greatest footballers was further strengthened when the former Manchester United midfielder amazed fans with a magical pass at Vincent Kompany's testimonial.

The game, staged to allow Manchester City fans to say goodbye to their former captain and to raise money for his homelessness charity Tackle4MCR, saw a City Legends XI take on a Premier League All-Stars XI.

Samir Nasri, Joleon Lescott, Ryan Giggs and Ashley Cole all featured, but it was Scholes who stole the show with this unusual through ball for Robin van Persie.

The clip has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times on Twitter, reminding fans of the passing ability that saw Scholes help United dominate the game for large parts of the 1990s and 2000s.

Goals from Martin Petrov, Benjani, Robbie Keane and Robin van Persie saw the game, which Kompany had to sit out due to a hamstring problem, end 2-2.

And while Scholes' attributes were on show for all to see, his struggles with tackling appeared to remain.

Class is permanent.
