Paul Scholes has played down the significance of the Club World Cup following Liverpool’s success in the competition.
Jurgen Klopp’s side were crowned world champions last week after they defeated Brazilian side Flamengo in the final held in Qatar.
Scholes won the FIFA Club World Cup back in 2008 with Manchester United, but doesn’t look back on that particular success with any fondness.
‘Well you want to win it once you’re there but I don’t think it was ever something that we were desperate to win,’ Scholes told BBC Five Live.
‘Even now if someone said to you ‘What trophies did you win over the years?’ I don’t think we’d mention the World Club Championship.
‘I really don’t. I’m not joking, I’m serious!
‘But you know what, it’s like anything else, it might take more importance over the years.

‘It looks like Liverpool have enjoyed it, they’ve celebrated it and probably will mention it and why not – but just when we were playing it wasn’t that serious I don’t think.
‘But now you look back I suppose you’re quite happy but it’s not something you set out to do as a player I don’t think.’
When asked which meant more to him – Club World Cup success or winning a trophy at his local badminton club – Scholes responded: ‘My badminton trophy!’
