Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal faces being snubbed by the 'Class of '92'.
The Mail on Sunday says while the club insist that Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville will all be offered roles under Van Gaal, who last week confirmed Ryan Giggs as his assistant, it is understood that Scholes, who has already said publicly that he does not expect to be at United, is unlikely to accept.
Nicky Butt already has a job with the Under-21s, though it has yet to be confirmed that he will continue in that role next season, having stepped up to help the first team when David Moyes was sacked, while Phil Neville is also unlikely to accept a post without a clear role.
None of the three old boys has been contacted by United executive chairman Ed Woodward to clarify their position in the past week, although the club are comfortable that given their close relationship with Giggs, they are kept abreast of developments.
