Man Utd fans love what Mike Phelan did after Paul Scholes pass in Vincent Kompany match | Football | Sport


Manchester United hero Paul Scholes set Twitter alight during Vincent Kompany’s testimonial on Wednesday night.

The former England international provided a reminder of what the Red Devils are missing with a slick, effortless pass through to Robin van Persie.

And Manchester United coach Mike Phelan has responded on Twitter by posting a brain emoji next to a football emoji.

Fans of the Red Devils are loving it with many also urging Phelan to convince Scholes to make a shock return from retirement.

“He would still be a start player at man united! SIGN HIM,” said one fan.

“Is he free for Leicester on Saturday?!” said a second fan.

“Sad that the young guys in your current squad can’t do that without hurting themselves yet a man that’s been retired for over five years does it with such ease,” were the thought of a third fan.

“Everyone liked that,” said a fourth supporter.

“Mike I think you should sign him again,” a fifth claimed.

Some United fans also used Phelan’s tweet as a chance to take aim at players, with Jesse Lingard in their sights.

“Get him in the line up instead of Lingard mike pleassseeee!!” said one supporter.

“@JesseLingard could only dream about doing that!! But hey his DNA is man Utd,” said a second.

A third chipped in with: “Play him V Leicester Mike can’t be any worse than Lingard and some of the other s****.”

And a fourth said: “Rashford and Lingard would have send it outside the stadium.”

Scholes revealed earlier this year that Phelan played a role in his return from retirement in January 2012.

The 44-year-old had hung up his boots months previously but was persuaded into playing for another 18 months.

And Scholes said: “[Alex Ferguson] wanted me initially to come back and coach the reserve team with Warren Joyce.

“So I started helping Joycey, and I was training with the reserves. I was training every day with the likes of Pogba, Lingard, all these types of players. They were a really good side and I was really enjoying training.

“I was getting fit, I felt great, and it got to December time and the team was struggling a bit.

“I spoke to Gary and Phil (Neville) to see what they thought,” he continued. “Then I went to assistant manager Mick Phelan, and I was nervous. But Mick thought it was a great idea.

“A day after I knocked on Fergie’s door and he said ‘great, let’s do it straight away, let me call David Gill and we’ll sort contract out.’”
