Former Manchester United academy guru Eric Harrison sees only positives from Paul Scholes' return.

Harrison, the mastermind behind United's famous class of 92, says the veteran midfielder's reintroduction to the fold will lift United.

"I thought he retired too soon," he told the Manchester Evening News. "It's a fantastic move and I'm so pleased the manager accepted that he wanted to come back because he is still world-class.

"You can see when he, Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley all play together that United will have an unbelievable midfield.

"That's the engine room of the team and it's where they've been struggling - but with three players of that calibre, they can do anything."
