Man Utd veteran Scholes: I was ready to quit at Christmas

Paul Scholes admits he was ready to quit Manchester United last Christmas.

The veteran midfielder concedes his form at the time was concerning him.

He told manutd.com: "I haven't made any decisions yet but last Christmas, as far as I was concerned, I wasn't going to be playing on in 2010/2011 as I wasn't playing well.

"Luckily things improved towards the end of the season. You need to be playing well to get into the team. I always set myself high standards as I want to feel that I am contributing to the team. If I'm not doing that then there is no point being here."
