With Manchester United calling out for a mid season boost, Sir Alex again showed why he is at the top of the game by reintroducing Paul Scholes into the team.

Having retired in the summer, Scholes came back reinvigorated and injected a freshness into the team that saw us leap frog Man City and march back to the top of the table.

Whilst City were able to do enough to again snatch their lead back, regardless of the outcomes of Sunday’s game Paul Scholes return will go down as another masterstroke from Sir Alex.

His appearances have been so impressive that again there has been talk of a return to the England set up, a full 8 years since his retirement. Yet despite the European Championships being this summer former United talisman Bryan Robson doesn’t expect to see Scholes in Poland and Ukraine.

Speaking to Yahoo Sport, when asked if Scholes would go to the Euros and if Scholes was England’s best midfielder Robson replied:

“He’s probably the most talented in terms of vision and passing the ball. Scholes has got great vision. He is the only one that can really answer that question though. I don’t know what Paul Scholes has got in his mind. He retired years ago. I don’t think it’s
something which Scholes would probably take onboard after so many years out but there is only Paul who can answer that question.”
