Manchester United legend doubts he will remain with club’s coaching staff

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has claimed that he will look elsewhere for a coaching job after a short spell with Ryan Giggs in the Old Trafford dugout, as reported by talkSPORT.

Giggs will stay on as new boss Louis van Gaal’s number two, but the likes of Scholes, Phil Neville and Nicky Butt are all set to leave.

The former England midfielder is keen to stay in coaching, even if it is not with United, and thinks former boss David Moyes may have been sacked prematurely.

“I’ve not spoken to (vice-chairman) Edward Woodward,” Scholes said.

“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.”

“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.”
