Future in doubt?

Former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Scholes says that he does not expect to be at Manchester United next season, as he does not think that he will be given a coaching role at the club. When Manchester United announced this week that Louis Van Gaal will be the coach and Ryan Giggs as his assistant, Scholes has heard nothing about his future at the club.

Scholes on his blog says, "I've not spoken to (vice-chairman) Edward Woodward,"

"I came back for Ryan Giggs for the last few games of last season to try to help out, but I'm not waiting for a phone call and don't expect to be at United next season.

"The players did not perform last season.

"The manager was a little negative with the teams he put out, but I wasn't around the place in training until Ryan asked me back, so I can't judge properly.

"David Moyes took a lot of stick, but I believe he's a top manager. I'd question if 10 months was enough time.

"Edward Woodward has an awful lot to prove this time that he's good enough at his job.

"He has to bring the players in that the new manager wants.

"It's obvious that last year he didn't manage to do that. If he doesn't we are not going to get anywhere near the top."

Paul Scholes at the earlier stages of last season was training the U-18 lads along with Nicky Butt, and was rumoured to be a part of David Moyes’ coaching team for next season. With Moyes out and Louis Van Gaal already announcing his coaching staff, it looks like the United legend will depart again from Old Trafford.
