Scholes hints Man Utd may not be last club

Ferguson says Scholes is guaranteed a spot if they reach Moscow after he was suspended for the 1999 triumph, but the midfielder says: "If we get there, I want to be there on merit.

"I don't want no sympathy vote. If I'm not playing well, the manager's not going to say, 'You missed the final 10 years ago, go and play for 10 minutes'. I wouldn't read too much into that one."

Scholes, 33, also admits he's trying to make the most of the final years of his career.

He told the Independent on Sunday: "There was always going to be a time when someone came in who's young and sprightly, with a lot of ability and will keep you out of the team. I know there probably isn't that much time left, so you have to try to enjoy it as much as you can, coming to training, playing games. I hope it's a long time away. I just want to concentrate on playing for as long as possible."

If that eventually means moving on from United, so be it.

"It won't be far, I'm very much a home person," he says.
