Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has revealed how, while he did enjoy his short stint as a coach, it does not compare to the excitement of being involved in a title race. Manchester United are currently five points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
Scholes explained to MUTV, “The coaching was OK but it wasn't like playing. I was still coming in every day and seeing players. It was difficult to adjust, I admit that. I really missed the playing side up until Christmas, when I went to see the manager.”
He added, “You would have snatched someone's hand off for this position a couple of months ago. We have put ourselves in a decent position but there is still a long way to go. We are going up against a very good team in City. They have had a fantastic season and they have a great squad of players that is capable of beating anybody.”
Paul continued, "But with this five-point lead we just have to concentrate on ourselves.” Manchester United take on relegation battling Queens Park Rangers at Old Trafford tomorrow at 13:30. Then, at 16:00, Manchester City face Arsenal at the Emirates.
