Manchester United trio Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville have doubts lingering over their respective futures at Old Trafford.

The Daily Mail suggests the former Manchester United stars have yet to be told if they will be offered a first-team coaching role.

New Manchester United boss Van Gaal moved quickly to appoint his long-term colleagues Frans Hoenk and Marcel Bout.

The 62-year-old also handed the recently retired Ryan Giggs the number two role, however the Welshman's fellow 'Class of 92 stars' in Scholes, Butt and Neville remain in the lurch over their roles at Manchester United.

Neville was brought back to the club by former manager David Moyes so he looks to be the most likely to receive the dreaded chop from the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich boss.

Butt, on the other hand, was promoted to a senior coaching role at Manchester United after Moyes' departure from the club.

The former Manchester United midfielder has previously been working with reserve team boss Warren Joyce - while Scholes was also helping out with the coaching of the Red Devils' next crop of rising stars on a part-time basis.
