Paul Scholes has admitted that he would be open to returning to Manchester United in some capacity in the future if the club came calling.
Often quiet during his time as a player, Scholes has certainly found his voice since retiring, with Manchester United’s struggles under David Moyes, Louis van Gaal an Jose Mourinho often at the centre of his impassioned outbursts.
The ex-England midfielder has often bemoaned the miserable football that his former side have served up in the five-and-a-half years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired, although he has been full of praise for the job that his former teammate, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has done since taking over the reigns last month, winning all seven of his games in charge.
While many thought the ‘Class of 92’ would have a big role in shaping United’s future, only former midfielder Nicky Butt is currently employed by the club, while the rest of the academy graduates pursue opportunities elsewhere.
However, with United playing a better brand of football under the Norwegian, Scholes has revealed that he would be open to a return to Old Trafford if he were wanted.
“I don’t know, you’d have to ask them,” Scholes told reporters at the Manchester Evening News.
“Ole is obviously potentially only there until the end of the season, he’s brought his own staff with him and it is obviously going well at the moment. Hopefully that will continue. If there is something in the future I am sure we would all be open to it.
“It is great to watch and I think everybody has got that buzz back again that wanted to go back to games and it is happening with everyone with a smile on their face.”
Scholes is currently being linked with taking over as manager of his boyhood club Oldham Athletic, while he is of course also a shareholder in non-league side, Salford City.
