Paul Scholes ‘hated playing for England’ Antony transferred BLOW Laporte’s attack to United De Gea left furious

Good morning Man Utd fans

Manchester United manager Mick Clegg has revealed Paul Scholes once told him he “hates playing for England,” he writes GIACOMO PISA.

Scholes won 66 caps for the Three Lions and represented his country in four major tournaments.

But Clegg recalled a telltale conversation between him and the Manchester United legend in 2004, in which Scholes revealed his feelings.

The midfielder has often been used on the left for England to accommodate Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard in the centre.

And bosses Sven-Goran Eriksson, Glenn Hoddle and Kevin Keegan have never really managed to get the most out of Scholes, who has won 11 league titles, three FA Cups and two Champions League trophies at club level.

Clegg wrote in his new book The Power and the Glory: “Paul said he hated playing for England, which came as a bit of a shock.

“I asked him why he keeps showing up and he said, ‘Well it’s England, you have to do that’.

“Paul was concerned about the reaction he would get from the rest of the country if he stopped playing for England.”

Clegg went on to reveal that he had advised Scholes that he would be “bullied” into playing for England.

And shortly after the two talked in 2004, Scholes retired from international football seven years after his England debut.
