Paul Scholes has conceded coaching does not come close to the thrill of a Premier League title fight with Manchester United.

Scholes abandoned his retirement in January and since the veteran midfielder returned to the fold, Sir Alex Ferguson's men have claimed a remarkable 31 points from 33 to establish a five-point lead over Manchester City with seven games remaining.

And even in the middle of what Ferguson famously once called: `Squeaky Bum Time' - when the pressure is at its most intense - Scholes would not want to be anywhere else. "The coaching was OK but it wasn't anything like playing," the 37-year-old told MUTV.
