Of course there are always many sides to the story and unless you really know - you can’t really know for sure.

But as I understand it - Scholes seems possibly to be one of those people who have worked their way up the ladder as a player - through hard work and graft and succeeded with club and country to the pinnacle. He could have played for other teams in Europe - other giants - but stuck with his local clubs. Maybe for loyalty or maybe for easiness and, perhaps, a little laziness or lack of hard work to learn a new culture or take a risk elsewhere. Who knows.

But I would be sure that with the majority of ex Premier League hot shots who earned enough money in the newer crazy wages era - they are not likely to want to stick it out at a smaller club. Days gone by you’d have had ex England Internationals happy to start their managerial career at a realistic lower level. But I doubt that’s so true of today. Especially when there’s also good money in TV work.

Maybe the owner is lying and didn’t allow Scholes a free reign - but I think it’s safe to say that Scholes is a quitter if not a spoilt brat.
