Scholes still undecided on United future

ESPN staff

Paul Scholes has refused to confirm whether he will still be at Manchester United next season, with the veteran midfielder preferring to concentrate on his current form.

Scholes, 36, made his return from an eight-week layoff in the 3-2 win against Blackpool on Tuesday evening, creating Dimitar Berbatov's winner with a trademark pass.

That was his 14th Premier League appearance of a season that is poised to end in glory - United are five points clear at the top of the table - but may also be his last as a professional.

"I don't know what I'm doing next year," he told MUTV. "I just want to concentrate on getting back playing for now. I like to have a week or two off at Christmas.

"This one just stretched out a bit longer, which has not been ideal. Hopefully in the next few weeks I can regain some fitness."

Ryan Giggs, a year older than Scholes, pledged his future to United last week by confirming he intends to extend his career by at least another 12 months.
