Silvestre: Man Utd pal Scholes on personal mission

Mikael Silvestre admits Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has been on a personal mission in the Champions League this season.

Scholes struck United's winner against Barcelona to send them into the final - after missing the club's famous victory in 1999 due to suspension.

"You could see his reaction, it was a big relief for him," Silvestre told MUTV. "He wasn't involved in '99, but now he is taking the team with him to Moscow. It's good for him, he fully deserves it. He is a great professional. He is a local lad so it means a lot to him."
