Man Utd's Scholes: I woud've accepted Hodgson's call

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes says he was ready to come out of international retirement this summer. Scholes has hinted that he would have ended his international retirement for Euro 2012 - if only Roy Hodgson had asked him.

He told the Sunday Mirror: "I didn't go to the Euros because I wasn't offered the chance.

"It was flattering to be talked about, but I wasn't asked, so it means nothing.

No such problems about the decision to carry on with United this season.

Scholes revealed: "The manager didn't have to twist my arm. He said 'You're going to play again, aren't you?' And I said 'yeah'."
