The Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has said that the added competition within the Manchester United squad will help them win the Premier league title this season. Unlike in the previous seasons, the Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has made numerous signings that are capable of playing in the first team from the start. This is expected to provide a serious competition to the established players at the club. The arrival of Robin van Persie from Arsenal is expected to provide serious competition upfront, while the presence of Kagawa is expected to provide competition in the midfield.
The added competition within the squad is only going to help them according to the veteran midfielder Paul Scholes. Despite being one of the oldest members of the squad, Paul Scholes continues to be a great influence on the Manchester United play. The veteran is expected to retire at the end of the season, although there is a chance that he will be persuaded into extending his contract just like last season. Speaking after the first three rounds of the new Premier league season, Scholes has hailed the competition within the squad. Manchester United are looking to win the 20th Premier league title.
“You always like to see new players come in even if they’re in your position because it’s healthy for the team and exciting to play with the new players. We’ve got strength everywhere in the squad. We’ve struggled with injuries to defenders, but when we have everyone fit I think there are two teams that the manager has available to him and that could compete in the Premier League and cup competitions,” said Paul Scholes in a recent interview given to the official website of the club. Manchester United currently trial the leaders Chelsea by three points.
