Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has joined Ryan Giggs' interim coaching set-up.

Scholes will assist Giggs at Manchester United until the end of the season - along with former teammates Nicky Butt and Phil Neville.

Neville and Butt were already members of staff at Old Trafford, however the latter has been promoted to Manchester United's first team coaching team after a spell with the development side.

Scholes has come into the club after a brief absence from Manchester United's Aon training complex.

It was originally thought that the 39-year-old would stay on as part of David Moyes' coaching staff after retiring from football at the end of last season, however he decided to take some time away from the club.

Scholes has been helping fellow 'Class of 92' member Nicky Butt coach Manchester United's Under-19 side for brief spells throughout the season but was not officially listed as a Red Devils coach.

However that has now changed as interim manager Giggs has decided to add Scholes to his temporary coaching team.

Giggs just needs to appoint David Beckham and Gary Neville as first-team coaches to have the full 'Class of 92' among his ranks.
