Scholes insists he accepts Ferguson rotating his squad for domestic and Champions League games with the Red Devils hosting Besiktas next Wednesday.
"He has to make sure we are all getting football at this stage of the season to maintain our fitness," said the veteran.
"He definitely picks certain players for certain games. He normally picks me for away matches.
"I still want to play every game but obviously it is not possible. I just play when he wants me to."
