Cape Town - Paul Scholes has admitted that he does not expect to return to Old Trafford next season.

Scholes - who came back to United to help out as coach after David Moyes was sacked and Ryan Giggs was temporarily placed in charge - believes he won't be included in Louis van Gaal's coaching staff for next season.

United have since confirmed Louis van Gaal as their new manager with Giggs as his assistant, but according to Sky Sports website, Scholes has heard nothing from the club regarding his future.

"I've not spoken to (vice-chairperson) Edward Woodward," Scholes wrote in his blog for Paddy Power.

"I came back for Ryan Giggs for the last few games of last season to try to help out but I'm not waiting for a phone call and don't expect to be at United next season."

Scholes, who hung up his boots last year after playing over 700 games for the club, branded last season a "disaster" but says David Moyes should not be held solely responsible.

Scholes added that Moyes is still a top manager and probably just wasn't given enough time.
