Scholes has publicly sounded his belief in the present Man Utd squad and said that the team can achieve success both on a domestic scale and on a European level. Scholes said that the key to this high potential for success is the depth of the squad available to Sir Alex Ferguson. With Man Utd playing Liverpool on Sunday and Roma in the Champions League quarter-finals, Man Utd are still in with a good chance of dominating English and European football.
Having lost their chance to do another historic treble, by being eliminated by Portsmouth in the FA Cup, Man Utd are determined not to throw away their chance of a double. Scholes said that there isnâ€™t much difference in the amount of talent that players have. Every player that Ferguson picks up for the team contributes something useful to the whole team, and every team picked has the ability to win matches.
â€œWhatever team the manager picks is capable of winning. The squad is definitely bigger and stronger than last season,â€ said Scholes, â€œThis year, hopefully we can steer clear of injuries, then the manager will be able to rotate things more and freshen the team up when needed – and that could make a real difference to us.â€
