Sensational Scholes will be back to his best

Sir Alex Ferguson is convinced Paul Scholes will be as good as new next season despite his continuing eye problems.

The former England star has admitted he may never be completely clear of blurred vision which forced him to miss over four months of the season.

However, despite Ferguson's repeated assertions that Scholes would not be called upon again until next season, the 31-year-old was given the green light to re-start his career earlier this month and was his usual effective self in the second half of the 4-0 win over Charlton at Old Trafford on the final day of the campaign.

Ferguson expects Scholes' condition to improve further during the summer and it is anticipated the influential midfielder will be part of the United squad which embarks on a three-match tour of South Africa in July.

And, while all the talk in United circles has been about who the Red Devils boss will sign this summer to strengthen his midfield, Scholes' return could turn out to be of even more significance.

'We are convinced he will be back next season,' Ferguson told the official Manchester United magazine.

'He is a sensational player, one of the best we have ever had.'

After failing to receive specific advice about the nature of Scholes' problem, Ferguson admitted there was understandably some initial concern about the player.

However, that has now eased, with Scholes reporting no ill effects from his late season run-out.

'It was an injury we have never been used to and it must have been worrying Paul because, when you have a problem with blurred vision and nobody can really give you a reason for it, then it is a concern,' added the United chief.

'But fortunately, he got back into training, he played the second half of the last game of the season against Charlton and he did very well.'
