Scholes returns to Man United to help out Giggs

Man United legend Paul Scholes has returned to the club to help out following the sacking of David Moyes, reports BBC Sport.

Paul Scholes

Scholes retired at the end of last season, departing alongside Sir Alex Ferguson, and the former England international turned down a full-time coaching role with the Red Devils under Moyes’ guidance, though he did coach the U-19 squad with former team-mate Nicky Butt this season.

With United legend Ryan Giggs taking over the reins at Old Trafford until the end of the season, Scholes has agreed to step up and help with the first team, with Butt and another member of the “Class of 92”, Phil Neville, who returned when Moyes arrived at the club having worked with the Scot at Everton, assisting the Welshman.

Scholes featured as a TV pundit for a United game against rivals Man City, which resulted in a 3-0 home loss to the Blues, and was not impressed with what he saw from the players, though he was keen to state his belief that Moyes should be given more time at the club. That additional time ended up spanning less than a month with the former Everton boss’ departure on Tuesday.

Scholes is third in the all-time list of appearances for the red half of Manchester, playing 718 games before retiring for the second time in May 2013. Only Giggs and Sir Bobby Charlton turned out more for the club.
