Paul Scholes Wanted To Play For England In The Euros

Paul Scholes has revealed that he was ready to come out of international retirement this summer.

The Manchester United midfielder has hinted that he would have ended his international retirement for Euro 2012 – if only Roy Hodgson had asked him.

He told the Sunday Mirror: “I didn’t go to the Euros because I wasn’t offered the chance.

“It was flattering to be talked about, but I wasn’t asked, so it means nothing.

No such problems about the decision to carry on with United this season.

Scholes revealed: “The manager didn’t have to twist my arm. He said ‘You’re going to play again, aren’t you?’ And I said ‘yeah’.”
