Hard-work behind scenes key to success of Man Utd pair Scholes, Giggs

Manchester United are carefully managing veteran pair Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes this season, reveals assistant manager Mike Phelan.

Phelan says there's a lot of work behind-the-scenes that assists in getting the most out of the legend duo.

He revealed: "I think that's the secret. You can take the foot off the gas a little bit if you want but this Premier League doesn't take any prisoners, it finds you out and I think the quality of the club, the quality of the player and the work that is done behind the scenes brings it all together and I think when you see our players running and sprinting in the 94th minute, that's a credit to them and the work they put in."
