Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has returned to the club’s coaching team under interim boss Ryan Giggs.

Giggs was appointed the interim manager of the Red Devils following the sacking of David Moyes after just 10 months at the helm of the English club and has been joined by former team-mates Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt.

"It's great to see Paul Scholes here at the Aon Training Complex today, assisting Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville", said Manchester United via their official Twitter account.

Following his retirement in 2011, Scholes became part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s coaching crew, but he reversed his decision to hang up his boots and got back on the field for the English club in January 2012, before finally bidding farewell in May 2013.


The 39-year-old was given another chance to join the backroom staff under Moyes, but the midfielder declined as he wanted to spend some time with his family.

But now with Giggs running things at Old Trafford, Scholes has agreed to help out and joined training, as the Welshman began his first day as the new coach today.

Giggs, Neville, Butt and Scholes are all graduates of the famous ‘class of 92’ that enjoyed major success under Ferguson, and now back together again, they will be hoping to restore some pride for the defending champions who are currently reeling in seventh in the Premier League.
