Scholes, who was speaking to presenter Jake Humphrey, quickly realized his mistake
The United legend then stopped short as he quickly realized his mistake and said ‘oops’.
Humphrey then chimed in, saying: “Can I just point out that’s only because at that time BT Sport didn’t exist.”
Scholes then said, “Exactly. I was going to say it.’
Humphrey was asking Scholes about his career in England as Glenn Hoddle was also in the studio.
Glenn Hoddle gave Scholes his first opportunity in international football in 1997
Scholes made 66 appearances for England before retiring from international football in 2004
Hoddle gave Scholes his first England call-up in 1997, with the midfielder making his debut against South Africa at Old Trafford.
Scholes made 66 appearances for England, scoring 14 goals.
He announced his retirement from international football relatively early in 2004 as he opted to focus on playing for United and his family life.
