David Moyes is pleased to have Ryan Giggs as a player-coach, but also wants to bring in Paul Scholes.

Manchester United manager David Moyes has revealed that he appointed Ryan Giggs to the backroom staff because the Welshman will make a "great" coach.

Moyes also said that he asked Paul Scholes to become a coach, but the midfielder wanted to spend some time with his family instead.

"I wanted to make sure that I had a connection to how things were before," Moyes said at his first press conference since becoming United manager. "I spoke with Paul Scholes as well, he felt he wanted to have some time off with his family.

"I felt the right person was Ryan Giggs and he has been great. He has been on his UEFA pro licence course, he is taking steps forward and to get him and Phil Neville together is great.

"I spent an hour on the phone with Scholes and there is a place for him and will look to bring him back in when he is ready."
