Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits he might have rushed Paul Scholes into action too quickly. Midfielder Scholes played on United's
American pre-season tour - a month after playing for England in Euro 2004.
Despite Scholes' retirement from international football, Ferguson admitted: "People have remarked that Paul looks a bit flat.
"We brought him back too early from pre-season training - he only had three days preparation and a groin injury."
Despite starting six of Manchester United's eight Premiership matches and having two outings in the Champions League, Scholes has made a poor start to
the season by his standards.
But that does not concern Ferguson, who is confident the midfielder will soon recapture his form.
