Scholes believes the 67-year-old can manage the club into his 70s.
“His record speaks for itself,” Scholes told the Manchester Evening News. “Twenty-three years is a long time and, hopefully, he can continue to be here and win trophies for a long time to come.
“Other teams don’t have the benefit of having a manager for so long.
“I think it goes to show what can be achieved if you have a manger for so long and the trophies they can win.
“I’ve known no different. When I played for England there was a change of manager from time to time and it probably didn’t seem to help most of the time. I’ve been lucky enough to play under one manager and it has been great.”
