Man Utd ace Scholes: Always good to beat Chelsea

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes was delighted with their Community Shield victory over Chelsea.

Scholes impressed in United's midfield, with a fine through ball in the build-up to Valencia's goal arguably the high point.

The former England midfielder added on Sky Sports: "It was a good game and we're happy with the win.

"It's more of a pre-season friendly but it's a trophy, we've managed to win it and we're more than happy to do that.

"It's always good to beat Chelsea. They are a quality side who beat us three times last year. That's disappointing but we've got off to the right start this year.

"We weren't that far off last year - just one point in the league. With more determination this year hopefully we can go one step further."

However, asked if he was expecting a phone call from England manager Fabio Capello, with a view to revisiting his decision to end international career, Scholes said: "I don't think so, no."
