Scholes recalls near departure

Scholes played his entire career at Old Trafford and retired at the end of last season.

“I wasn’t in a great mood. I had been left out the Liverpool game the previous weekend and I knew that the team going down to Arsenal in the cup was basically a reserve side. I ended up getting fined and having to apologise, but I was lucky. The manager would have been within his rights to get rid of me.”
