Man Utd ace looking forward to run-in

Scholes admits that it is time to “stand up and start playing”.

“It’s the sign for the run-in,” said Scholes. “It just kind of happens without you knowing it.

“You know there are 12 games left in the league, the FA Cup is getting down to the latter stages and Europe is starting again.

“Every game becomes more important. It is the time to stand up and start playing.”

United face Marseille away in the first leg of their Champions League tie next week.

He added: “Marseille won’t be easy. It’s a tough place. We played there before quite a few years ago and got beaten.

“But we are looking forward to it. Hopefully it is the start of a good end to the season for us and we can go all the way to the final again and win it.”
