Paul Scholes has confirmed David Moyes’ claims that he rejected the opportunity to join United’s coaching staff. Two of Scholes’ former team mates, Phil Neville and Ryan Giggs, have taken up coaching positions this summer and Scholes reckons that one day he will do too.

“I have spoken to him a couple of times but I am going to take a nice break now and try and get my head away from football for a little bit,” Scholes said. “You do find it hard with all the pre-season games though, you find yourself watching them. I am going to take along break then see how I feel. Obviously it’s nice there is something there for me if I want to go back to it. I am sure ultimately I probably will do.”
