They replied to his message with a picture of Scholes celebrating after scoring a goal. ‘The Ginger Prince,’ as he is known, went on to become one of the club’s greatest ever players since breaking into the first-team as ‘The Class of 92′.
Scholes went on to make 718 appearances for the club, and was even regarded as the best ever midfielder in the past by several fellow legendary figures that included the likes of Xavi and Andrea Pirlo.
Fans went berserk on Twitter and celebrated Kroos’ reply with a lot of enthusiasm, and some went a step further and even asked the club to sign the former Bayern Munich man in the summer.
