Sir Alex Ferguson insists that Paul Scholes will be at Manchester United next season either as a player or a coach.

Sir Alex Ferguson has said that Paul Scholes will definitely be at Manchester United next season, but is not sure whether it will be in a playing or a coaching capacity.

Scholes, 38, came out of retirement last season but has been sidelined for much of this campaign because of injury.

He didn't celebrate United's title-winning victory over Aston Villa on Monday with the rest of the squad, but Ferguson doesn't think that necessarily points to the end of his playing days.

"We'll have to wait and see with Scholes," Ferguson told the club's official website.

"He's got an injury that is bothering him a lot. I don't think he came onto the pitch but he's not that type. He was probably home by the time the game ended!

"It doesn't matter as he'll be here anyway - whether as a player or coach. He'll be here anyway."

Next up for United is a trip to Champions League-chasing Arsenal later this afternoon.
