Manchester United want to have Paul Scholes back at the club in a coaching role with the U19s this season, according to Steve Bates.
As Man United are back in the Champions League, the U19s are automatically entered into a competition which mirrors the first-team’s group stage games.
Nicky Butt is already tasked with coaching the U19s and Scholes previously worked with them two seasons ago when David Moyes was in charge, so he already has experience.
Scholes has been very busy off the field with media duties since he retired as a player but it was always expected that he would come back into football with United in a management role. Could that be this season with the U19s?
There aren’t many better players for United’s youngsters to learn from than Scholes and it would be fantastic for him to come back in a coaching role this year.
The UEFA U19s Champions League tournament is a great idea which gives the youngsters an opportunity to experience European football, including away games, so it’s an invaluable learning tool.
To have Scholes on board in that role would be another asset and it would certainly be a smart move by United.
