Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has revealed he will quit football coaching if he finds he is not up to it.
Scholes retired from the game following Manchester United’s 3-1 defeat to Barcelona in the Champions League final in May after playing 17 years with the club.
The former England international was then offered a coaching role with United by boss Sir Alex Ferguson.
The midfielder admitted he hadn’t thought about his future after he retired until recently as he believed he could still fulfil a role for the Red Devils. He also revealed his options were restricted to football in terms of his working knowledge so he feels duty-bound to give it a go.
"A couple of years ago I felt like my career was never going to end, so you don't think about what to do in the future in the same way as I have done over the past six months," Scholes told Inside United. "Football is the only thing I know a little bit about so I am going to give the coaching a go. If it doesn't work or I am not very good at it I won't carry on doing it."
