Paul Scholes goal against Barcelona

Paul Scholes has told the Manchester Evening how pleased he is that United’s main rivals haven’t followed the Old Trafford blueprint for success- longevity.

Scholes said:

“I cannot believe how lucky I have been to have played under one manager for so long,”

“You look at Chelsea and they sack their manager after doing the double the year before. You have to give credit to the people who run this club.

“To know that to stick with people is the best thing to do at the end of the day.

“Not many clubs seem to be following what United have done. That is all the better for us. If these teams keep sacking managers that is great – it goes to show we can keep on winning things with the same manager.”

Scholes has now joined the coaching staff at Old Trafford and who knows one day the quietest man in football could be a shock successor to Sir Alex Ferguson.

Although Scholes is arguably the last player you’d expect to see in the limelight, if he revels in his coaching role, not many Reds would be complaining if he succeeded Fergie.
