Ferdinand calls on Scholes to stay

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has called on veteran midfielder Paul Scholes to stay at the club for one more season.

Scholes, 37, came out of retirement in January to help ease the club's midfield woes and has led the side to the brink of the Premier League title. Indeed, the club have not lost a Premier League match where the midfield maestro has started and Ferdinand is keen to see him remain.

"It would be nice if he could play for another season," he told The Sun. "With Scholesy, though, you know it doesn't make a difference what anybody else says. He's his own man and he'll make his own decision."

United hold a three-point lead over rivals Manchester City at the top and face the Citizens in a title-deciding match at the Etihad Stadium on Monday and Ferdinand believes that Scholes could be key.

"He was out of the game for months and yet he's come straight back into top-level football and he's hardly looked out of place," he said. "At this stage of his career, that's phenomenal.

"It's not just the quality of his football that impresses me but the way he's adapted physically. Would we have been in the same position without him? It's impossible to say [but] it's great to have him back though.

"There are a number of reasons why we've done well since the turn of the year and there's no doubt that one of them is Paul Scholes."
