Retired veteran Paul Scholes is keen to get into the swing of his new coaching job as soon as possible. Speaking to Manutd.com the ex-midfielder said: “I haven’t done that much yet but what I have done I have enjoyed. I am not looking too far ahead. I just want to get into it and start it and hopefully I can do the job. If I can do it I will want to be as good as I possibly can be.”
However Scholes admits that he has no idea as to whether he will make a top quality coach or not and he believes the first few months will be a test rather than a definite commitment.
“It might not work out and I might have to end up doing something else. Football is the only thing I know a little bit about. I will try coaching and if it doesn’t work or I am not very good at it I won’t carry on doing it. I think I will probably know within two or three weeks of starting the job whether I am will be any good or if I want to carry on doing it.”

Welbeck ready to press his claim.
Danny Welbeck is hoping that the Under-21’s championship can be the springboard for his Manchester United career. The 20 year old spent the season on loan at Sunderland where he drew much praise before missing much of the latter half of the season through injury. Welbeck is one of four United players in the England squad in Denmark and after his goal against Spain Welbeck revealed that Wayne Rooney messaged him a welcome back to Old Trafford. Although he also spoke of the positive impact his season on loan had he is keen to return to United and stake his first team claim. Speaking to The Mirror Welbeck revealed: “The manager said I’ll get decent opportunities and hopefully I’ll take them and progress from there.”
Cleverly happy with Scholes comparison.
Young midfielder Tom Cleverly has been likened to retired Manchester United legend Paul Scholes by Wigan coach Graham Barrow. Cleverly has yet to make a senior appearance for United but has enhanced his burgeoning reputation with an impressive season on loan at the Latics and is now hoping to return to Old Trafford and grab himself a first team place.
In an interview with the The People Cleverly commented that: “I spoke to the boss and he said he wants me in the team next season, and I am sure we will chat again over the summer about what his plans are for me. I’m just thinking about having a good season at United – but that has to start with a good summer first.”
When asked about Burrow’s compliment in comparing him to Scholes Cleverly played down the flattery saying: “He’s been a great player for the club and I know I have a lot of hard work to go before I get on his level. But if I can fill a bit of a hole he has left then that would be brilliant.”
