Scholes signs new Manchester United deal
Paul Scholes has signed a one-year contract extension with Manchester United.
There had been some considerable doubt over the 35-year-old remaining at Old Trafford earlier in the season, when he claimed to be unhappy with his contribution.
However, Sir Alex Ferguson was always confident such fears would be allayed.
"We are delighted Paul is staying on for another year," said Ferguson.
With Ryan Giggs already signed up for another season, it means only Gary Neville of Ferguson's old-stagers has still to commit himself for another season.
"His form this year indicates his ability and his enjoyment of the game are as strong as ever, that's every reason to stay on," said Ferguson.
"There was talk about him wanting to retire, but when you see his enjoyment in training and playing you can see how much he wants to carry on."
Scholes is now determined to land a 10th Premier League title, knowing he will have another chance even if this season ends in failure.
"I am pleased to have signed for another year. I am feeling good and enjoying my football," said Scholes.
"I would like to thank the boss, the coaching staff and also the fans for their continued support."
