After a gilded 17-year career at the top of the game, Scholes' know-how is an invaluable commodity for Sir Alex Ferguson, and the midfielder is relishing the new career move.
"I'm not too sure what the manager wants me to do yet but I'm looking forward to it," he told manutd.com. "I've done bits and pieces. It's certainly something different and I just want to be able to help players in whatever way I can.
"I haven't done that much yet but what I have done I have enjoyed. I am not looking too far ahead. I just want to get into it and start it and hopefully I can do the job.
"If I can do it I will want to be as good as I possibly can be. I just don't know at what level I will be most comfortable. I will just take it as it comes. If I get some confidence as I am doing it we will take it from there."
