Paul Scholes came out retirement because he is missed the day-to-day life of being a footballer, according to Sir Alex Ferguson.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed that Paul Scholes told him a few weeks ago that he was ready to come out of retirement.

The boss believes that the midfielder decided to make a return because he was missing the day-to-day life of being a footballer.

"It has been in the offing for a few weeks," Ferguson told ITV Sport. "Paul came to see me and said that he wanted to come back. He said he was missing it too much.

"There are no negatives. He is one of the greatest players in Manchester United's history."

Scholes, who is on the bench for today's Manchester derby, will wear the number 22 shirt.
