Man Utd boss Ferguson: I can understand Scholes ducking spotlight

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson can understand why Paul Scholes avoids the spotlight.

"I know where he is coming from there," said Ferguson. "It is agony trying to get him to press conferences or do anything for UEFA games.

"I made him captain once. He didn't like it. There is no chance having it again.

"These days, on the press side of things some do it grudgingly and can cope with it. Others enjoy it and are very professional about it.

"But quite a few don't enjoy it at all. They just see themselves as footballers. When they have finished training they like to be back home."
