Fergie: Scholes will play on

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists Paul Scholes will not be retiring at the end of the season.

Last Updated: 21/12/12 at 15:22 Post Comment

Reports had suggested that the 38-year-old midfielder has told "friends" he will be quitting the game for a second time next summer.

But Ferguson is certain that if that was the case, Scholes would have let him know.

Ferguson said: "I would be surprised if Paul had spoken to someone without speaking to me - and he hasn't - so we can dismiss that."

There have also been suggestions this could be 39-year-old Ryan Giggs' final season in the game, and that Rio Ferdinand's future at Old Trafford is uncertain.

But Ferguson said: "Ryan could play for another year or two. Rio has been terrific. The speculation comes from our policy of only giving older players one-year contracts."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
