Scholes marks Old Trafford countdown

 

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has admitted he does not expect to spend more than another two seasons at the club.

The 33-year-old has spent his entire career at Old Trafford and been at the heart of most of United's success under Alex Ferguson.

Scholes said: "How long will I go on? I'd think two years at the most.

"I have one year left on my contract and hopefully I'll get another one but I suppose it all depends on how you're feeling and how you're playing.

"At the moment I just think two years would be about right."

Scholes has not ruled out moving to a club at a lower level to prolong his career or later becoming a coach, but he admits he will not miss the spotlight that comes with playing at the top level.

He added: "I can't say that I can't wait to finish but I am looking forward to finishing with everything that goes with it.

"I suppose people are just very invasive and are always wanting to know what you're going to do.

"The only thing I will definitely miss is the football, not the general life of a footballer."
