thumbnail Hello,

This might be midfielder's last season, or it might not...

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has admitted that he is not sure how long his career will last after being persuaded out of retirement last season by manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

The former England midfielder recently signed a one-year contract extension and is not ruling out playing beyond next summer when it expires.

“I don’t know if this season will be my last,” Scholes told the club's official website.

“I did read that somewhere but I’ll just take every game as it comes and if I’m feeling okay and doing the job that the manager wants me to do then we’ll see how things are at the end of the season. Hopefully it'll be another good one for me."

United are currently in the USA preparing for their pre-season tour of North America. Once the season begins Scholes is hoping for an improvement on the Red Devils' last campaign, which saw win the League Cup before Chelsea trumped them by achieving a Premier League and FA Cup double.

"Pre-season is always a busy time of the year for us because we’re focused on getting set for the start of the season," Scholes added.

"We’re doing lots of training in very hot conditions but hopefully that will stand us in a good stead.

“As far as next season goes we want to get back on track [after losing out in the Premier League and Champions League]. Hopefully we’ll have better luck with injuries and win some more trophies."
