Manchester United Set To Hand Another Club Legend A Coaching Role

Man United look set to hand former star Scholes a permanent coaching role despite his issues with Ed Woodward.

Manchester United’s legendary midfielder Paul Scholes could be handed a coaching role with the Red Devils despite having lashed out at the club’s chief executive Ed Woodward earlier in the season.

Scholes, who had earlier questioned Woodward’s credentials to remain at the club after he failed to land the players that previous manager David Moyes wanted last season.

Despite the outburst though, Woodward reckons that Scholes could be of good use to United, and insisted that he would look to get back any past players of great repute, including Scholes, to help the club.

Speaking about handing the 39-year old a coach role at the club alongside new manager Louis van Gaal, a senior United official was quoted saying in the Daily Star, “Everything that has been decided so far has been announced, but we want all these guys at the club if possible and that certainly includes Paul Scholes.”

Scholes meanwhile, had said that that he did not expect any role at Old Trafford under new boss van Gaal, but it will be interesting to see how Scholes and Woodward get along if the Englishman is indeed handed a coaching role at the club.
