Shrugging off yesterday's 2-2 draw with Urawa Reds, Scholes told MUTV: "At this stage, winning's not the most important thing.
The midfielder says it's important United get off to another quick start in the league and he believes the Reds' summer signings will aid that objective.
"Every player gets excited when new players come, especially with the quality of players that have joined. They all look impressive and they can only make us better.
"We want to do the same as we did last year [win the league] and maybe win the FA Cup and Champions League as well. I think we've got a squad that's capable of having as good a season as last year, if not better."
