Scholes can now be found working with the reserves, along side reserve manager Warren Joyce, having taken up his role as technical coach.
And having worked under a number of brilliant coaches himself, Scholes feels it would be remise of him not to pass on their teachings as he shepherds in a new wave of talent at Old Trafford.
Speaking exclusively to Inside United, Scholes remarked,
“It would be stupid not to use the experience of the people you’ve worked with.
“I’ve worked with unbelievable coaches like Archie Knox, Steve McClaren, Rene Meulensteen, Mick Phelan and Brian Kidd. I’ve worked with the best so if I haven’t picked something up from them, there’s something not quite right.
“I’ve been working with the Reserves. The Youth team already have a couple of coaches, so I’ve gone with Warren Joyce. He’s been great; I’ve settled in well with him and he’s been teaching me along the way so that’s been good.
“He’s got bundles of experience which is nice – he’s been coaching probably half his life, 20-odd years in the job. He’s been great, always giving me bits of advice; what to look out for, what he thinks I should be doing. He’s been brilliant to have here.”
