Butt Endorses Scholes Man Utd Return

Former Man Utd midfielder Nicky Butt believes that Paul Scholes will prove an “inspiration” after his decision to come out of retirement to aid the Red Devils’ title defence, according to goal.com.

The 36-year-old former England international felt the decision at Old Trafford to tempt his former domestic and Three Lions team-mate out of retirement was a “no-brainer”, believing that Scholes – who it was revealed would come out of retirement prior to United’s FA Cup triumph over bitter rivals Man City – has the ability to hit the ground running upon his return.

He said: “He could be either be a revelation and be brilliant and play in every game or be a substitute and just play here and there and just help out but whatever happens it is a very good move for all parties concerned. For the manager as well it will have been a no-brainer because he knows what sort of character he is and is familiar with his qualities, so he will know what he can bring to the team.

When you bring someone from the outside into the club, sometimes it takes a while for them to settle in but with Scholesy he knows the club inside-out and so he’s been able to hit the ground running. It was surprising but I knew that he was getting a bit twitchy about playing again as he trained with the reserves as [manager] Warren Joyce’s assistant. He had been keeping himself fit and was a little bit upset that he had retired a bit too early.

He decided to speak to the manager and one thing led to another and the outcome was that he has come back for the last few months of the season.
