Scholes considered Everton move
Paul Scholes has revealed he considered a move to Everton after deciding to come out of retirement in 2012.
The ex-England international hung up his boots in May 2011, but reversed his decision later that year before re-joining Manchester United the following January.
But not believing Sir Alex Ferguson would want to re-sign him for the Red Devils, having rejected the Scots’ pleas to postpone his retirement plans, Scholes has admitted that then Everton skipper Phil Neville asked him to move to Goodison Park.
“I came back in September with Warren Joyce and the U23s and I was training every day,’ Scholes told DAZN, cited by the Metro.
“I felt as fit as I’d probably ever had done after having four months off – it was just the break I needed.
“I said to Joyce that I wanted to play again – I just wanted to play.
“Where it was I don’t care. I didn’t expect United to want me back.
“I spoke to Phil Neville and he said: “Come and play for Everton”.
“I’ve never really wanted to play for anyone else or be involved with any other club but if that was the only option I had then I might have done it, I don’t know.”
