Fergie on the return of Paul Scholes

Manchester United are already going strong even without key midfielder Paul Scholes and now that the former England international is on the verge of a comeback from a three-month injury layoff, Man United manager SirAlex Ferguson is visibly upbeat about his team’s progress in the remainder of the season.

Goal.com quotes Fergie as saying:

I am more confident now Scholes is coming back. He brings a bit of class at important times in matches. That’s what Scholes is probably best at producing, moments that turn games. It’s a big bonus for us having him back. Scholes’ great asset down the years has been appearing in the box late. The number of goals he has scored for us from midfield is unique. His other big assets are his passing, his composure and his thinking during a game. At 33, I regard him just as highly as I did when he was 23.

Everyone still highly regards Scholesey. Scholes is one of the perennial footballers who appear to grow stronger with age and yes, Man United are stronger now that Scholes is back. Spurs, watch out!
