Ferguson urges Scholes to sign

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson has called on Paul Scholes to swallow his pride and extend his Manchester United career by another season.

The 36-year-old has seen Gary Neville retire and Ryan Giggs sign a one-year deal in the past couple of weeks but has yet to decide what to do himself. Scholes is dubious about the impact he has at Old Trafford given his dwindling number of appearances. However, Ferguson has no reservations about the feisty midfielder's contribution to the cause.

"I am more than hopeful about Paul signing another contract," said Ferguson.

"I think he should.

"His fitness isn't in question. I think Paul feels he has to play all the games.

"It is not a bad thing to be that way but at his age, that is impossible.

"But he can still play a big part for Manchester United, this season and next."
