Scholes Permanent Blurred Vision

Paul Scholes has vowed to see out the remaining three years of his contract with Manchester United.

The midfielder has been sidelined by an eye problem he admits may leave him with permanent blurred vision.

Scholes: 'I have three years left on my contract and I want to stay at United for that length of time. The blurred vision has not completely gone yet but it has been four months now, so I am not sure it will be completely normal.

'Obviously, it is not perfect if one of your eyes is not 100 per cent but I have played some football in training and I should be okay to start playing again.

'I don't really know why it happened. Apparently, it is something quite rare in people my age.

'Unfortunately, it has happened to me and I just have to get on with it.

'My aim now is for next season. As long as I am ready for then I will be happy.

'I was a bit worried but it has been more frustrating than anything else because, while as a footballer you expect to pull muscles, this was something completely different.

'I never really thought I had played my last game or anything like that. I was just focused on getting it right and the sooner I could get back the better.'
