Man Utd legend Scholes doesn't regret outspoken blog

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes doesn't believe his outspoken World Cup blog has worked against him.

Scholes was critical of Wayne Rooney and United vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

He has stressed he has had no sense of any real damage having been caused to his relationship with the club or his former team-mate Rooney.

He told PA Sport: "It has never come back at me. I don't think that was a problem.

"More was made of the Wayne thing than it actually was.

"I was saying he is England's best goalscorer and should be playing centre-forward.

"I was only saying I don't think he should be played in wide areas - that I don't think he has the legs to do it any more. That was the only thing he might have taken a little bit of offence to.

"As an England and United fan, I want him to play centre-forward because I know if he does, he'll score goals.

"From my side we are alright - whether Wayne is upset, I don't know. But he is an intelligent lad, and if he read it, he'll know what I'm saying.

"Some tried to make out I said he was gone, finished, which is nonsense. He has been an unbelievable player, and he still has a lot to offer."
