United - Scholes Accepts His Role

United - Scholes Accepts His Role

Paul Scholes played much more for Man United last season than many people would have expected, although he accepts he will play more of a bit part role this season.

At 35 Scholes knows that he's unable to play two or three games per week anymore, and he accepts this: 'I know that playing two or three times a week it is not going to happen anymore. So you just have to be ready when needed.

'It is accepted, definitely, given there are that many games and at our age we have to be ready when the manager needs us.'

Scholes, who made 24 league starts last season, was fortunate with injuries and hopes to have the same luck this time round so he will be available to Sir Alex Ferguson as and when needed: 'You train every day and I did not miss a day's training last season, which was good. I managed to avoid injury.

'When you are at a club like this you have to be capable of doing that, especially like last season when we had that many injuries.'

I would still expect, even if his outings are slimmed down a bit during 2010/11, Scholes to play a big part in Man United's season.

Who plays though when he doesn't? I've said it before i would like to see Anderson play in a more attacking role like Scholes use to.

They have to continue to use him as they can't afford to sign any decent replacements.

At his age Scholes is probably grateful he won't be playing three times a week!

I doubt that. Knowing Scholes to be the sort of guy he is, it probably kills him that he can't play as much as he used to.

Red Boy: since Wswilly3's team got money, he started believing in it. till then he was very unhappy with his pathetick team. but how much time they can be happy? only in trasfer windows, once the season starts, he again will go on to scratch his heads about what is going on? and at the end of season, will declare next year will be of his team, what a shame. Scholes, no matter what his age is, still have capabilities to kick *****ty's arse when still 27 seconds of play left in the game.
