PICTURE: Scholes at Carrington for his first day as Manchester United coach

Cheer up Scholesy.

Paul Scholes has finished his first day back at Manchester United after being named alongside Nicky Butt and Phil Neville as Ryan Giggs’ assistants for his period as interim manager.

Earlier this season, Scholes helped Butt out with United’s Under-19s side and even travelled away with the team to help them in the UEFA Youth League, but up until this point he hasn’t been involved with the club in a full time capacity since retiring.

It’s great to have him back in the set-up because who better to coach United’s current squad than someone who has been there himself, worked his way to the top from our academy and is one of the most revered midfielders from this generation.

Why did Scholes wait until Moyes had left to get involved with United’s coaching staff? That’s all largely irrelevant now that he is part of the club again and even though his current role is only a temporary job, you’d hope that Scholes would be part of the coaching set-up when United’s new manager took over in the summer.
