Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt are trying to get their former teammate and Manchester United legend Paul Scholes to come back to the team and coach the U19 Team.
Paul Scholes is currently a TV analyst for BT Sports but has made no secret of his desire to one day return to coaching, despite turning down an offer from Oldham.
When asked why he declined the Oldham job, Scholes stated that:
“It wasn’t the right time for me at that particular moment.”
There were times when Paul Scholes was quite critical of Louis Van Gaal’s methods at Manchester United.
“At times, United’s football is miserable. To beat opposing teams you have to attack, and to attack you have to take risks.”
“It’s all about taking risks as a Manchester United player and having the balls and tenacity to go out and attack the opposition.”
“They’re [the fans] used to watching United teams that play high intensity football and score plenty of goals – and that just hasn’t happened.”
It is with no doubt that Paul Scholes‘ footballing abilities would do wonders for young players to learn from. Signing Paul Scholes back as a coach would surely do wonders.
