Scholes considered moving to Everton
Paul Scholes has revealed he is considering moving to Everton after deciding to come out of retirement in 2012.
The former England international hung up his boots in May 2011, but rescinded his decision later in the year before joining Manchester United the following January.
But not believing Sir Alex Ferguson would want to re-sign him for the Red Devils, having rejected the Scots’ requests to postpone his retirement plans, Scholes admitted that Everton skipper Phil Neville asked him to move to Goodison Park.
“I came back in September with Warren Joyce and the U23s and was training every day,” Scholes told DAZN, quoted by the metro.
“I felt as fit as I probably never did after taking four months off – it was just the break I needed.
“I told Joyce I wanted to play again – I just wanted to play.
“Where it was, I don’t care. I didn’t expect United to want me back.
“I spoke to Phil Neville and he said, ‘Come and play for Everton’.
“I never really wanted to play for someone else or be involved with another club but if that was the only option I had then I could have done it, I don’t know. “
