Man Utd News: Sir Alex Ferguson wants Paul Scholes to stay at Manchester United as a coach once he retires.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has stated once again that he wants Paul Scholes to sign a new one-year contract extension at the club.
Ferguson has also let the midfielder know that there is a place on his coaching team once he retires, should he want to stay in the game.
It has often been suggested that the former England international would end up playing for Oldham Athletic – the club he supported as a boy.
However, his current manager believes he has enough quality to stay at the top for at least another year.
Ferguson told the Sunday Mirror: “I want [Paul] Scholes to stay, but he is such a proud person.
“He wants to play in every game and I fully understand that.
“But if we can get him to buy into the way I have been using him, sparing him in some games and using him in important matches, then he is of fantastic value to us.
“Paul has a place on the staff here when he retires and everybody at United wants him to stay on.”
Scholes’ current lack of playing time at Old Trafford has seen him slip down the Castrol Rankings to a current position of 93.
