Scholes sympathetic toward Tevez

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes says he sympathises with one-time team-mate Carlos Tevez over his apparent refusal to warm-up during the Champions League defeat at Bayern Munich.

Paul Scholes: I'm starting to miss it

Tevez has been embroiled in controversy and speculation since the midweek trip to Germany, and earned the wrath of manager Roberto Mancini, among others, in the aftermath of the incident. But Scholes has expressed a level of understanding for Tevez's situation after revealing he went through a similar experience at United.

"I know Carlos quite well. He's a player who wants to be playing,'' Scholes told BBC Radio 5 live. "When he's a sub, it will be killing him.

"It's totally up to the manager but Carlos wouldn't have been thinking that. He'll be thinking, 'The manager is against me, why is he not bringing me on? I'm City's best player and he's not playing me'.

"I'm not saying he [Tevez] is right - it's totally up to the manager."

Scholes, who retired from playing in the summer to take up a coaching role at United, refused to play in a League Cup tie in 2001 having been dropped for the previous game against Liverpool.

He explained: "You think you should be playing and my head was all over the place. I thought he [Sir Alex Ferguson] was messing me about, wrongly really. It's up to him what he does with his team.

"I realise it was stupid. I let the manager down and it was something I regretted. It's probably similar to Carlos Tevez's state of mind if it is true he refused to come on."
