Scholes is working with the defender in his role as assistant coach of the reserve-team.
He told United Review: "Michael’s been great. I hadn’t seen a lot of him till we’d trained with him and had a few games, but he’s come on leaps and bounds from what I hear. Again, he reads the game so well as a central defender, and he also goes forward well. When he wins the ball, he can pass it well, make one-twos and he’s a centre-half who’s very good on the ball.”
