Scholes slams talk of return for England

Paul Scholes has rejected talk of an international return with England.

The 31-year-old midfielder stood down from England duty following Euro 2004, claiming he wanted to spend more time with his family.

However, it had been suggested new manager Steve McClaren was ready to attempt to talk Scholes round ahead of the forthcoming qualifying campaign to reach the 2008 European Championships.

McClaren never got as far as actually speaking to Scholes about the situation. And it now appears any conversation would be a waste of time anyway as the Manchester United star, now recovered from the eye complaint which ruled him out for over four months last term, has no intention of reversing his decision.

'It is nonsense,' Scholes told www.manutd.com.

'I don't know where the story came from. To be honest, I have not even contemplated it.'

The news will be greeted with a sigh of relief by Sir Alex Ferguson, who has already suffered one blow on the international front this week.

Despite insisting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should remain exclusively focused on his club career, the veteran forward has been called into the Norway squad for this month's friendly with Brazil.
