Redknapp suggests Scholes England call

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes will be approached by Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp if he takes the vacant England job, The Guardian reports.

Scholes recently came out of retirement for United until the end of the season, but has been retired from international football since 2004. The 37 year old has been great for the Premier League champions since his return and was approached by former England boss Fabio Capello before the 2010 World Cup. Scholes said that the call came too late and Redknapp is hopeful he can coax Scholes out of international retirement.

Redknapp said: ‘Let’s be honest, you would love to have Paul Scholes in the Euros this year. He’d be in your team, he’s that good. Whoever’s there would love to take him, I’m sure. You’d love him to play. He plays like the Spaniards, like Xavi or (Andres) Iniesta. He does not give the ball away’.

The United midfielder has appeared in every match since his return against Manchester City on January 8th and has shown the same form as ever. Scholes has been hailed to go on for two more years by former Manchester United teammate Nicky Butt, but there have been no indications of Scholes extending his deal past the end of the season.
