Scholes wasn’t asked to play at Euro 2012

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has insisted he wasn’t asked to play at Euro 2012 for England, despite the dearth of central midfield options Roy Hodgson had during the tournament.



Scholes told the Daily Mail: “I wasn't offered the chance. It was flattering to be talked about. But I wasn't asked, so it means nothing.”


The 37-year-old retired from football as a whole this time last year, but was lured back by Sir Alex Ferguson with the Red Devils missing a midfield lynchpin.


England had similar issues this summer, as Steven Gerrard and Scott Parker were asked to play almost every minute of every game, as the inexperienced duo of Jordan Henderson and Phil Jones were the only back-up options.


Scholes will play on again next season for United, as his irrepressible range of passing and ability to dictate a game show no sign of waning.
