Scholes joins Giggs in taking Manchester United training

The Welshman, appointed as interim boss after David Moyes's sacking, called on his long-time teammate to assist in Wednesday's practice session, his first in his new role.
Interim Manchester United manager Ryan Giggs called on old teammate Paul Scholes for assistance as he took his first training session at the club on Wednesday.

Giggs was appointed in a caretaker role on Tuesday after David Moyes was sacked less than 12 months into his six-year deal, and with Saturday's home clash against Norwich City fast approaching, the veteran summoned his long-time teammate to help.

Former United teammates Nicky Butt and Phil Neville – who are on the club's coaching staff – were also present at the Carrington training ground.

Butt coaches the club's Under-19 team and Scholes has assisted in the club's European campaign.

Neville remains part of the club's first-team staff despite the departure of Moyes, with whom he also worked at Everton.

Along with Gary Neville, the four members of the 'Class of '92' agreed a deal in March to buy non-league club Salford City FC together.

United is languishing in seventh in the Premier League table, 23 points behind table-topper Liverpool and with the hope of Champions League qualification extinguished.
