"We've filled the gaps we've needed to fill. But the one we're having difficulty replacing is Paul Scholes, which is always going to be hard.
"I don't think we'll find a Scholes but we'll find a different type of player because Manchester United do that. Time and time again we've faced this problem when we've lost great players. Eventually something turns up, either through our youth system or we identify someone.
"We're analysing the young players in the youth team and what their capabilites will be, and we'll give them an opportunity.
"Scholes is a player of a lifetime. In his 20 years at the club it's hard to pick out a bad game. He was such a great, consistent player for us but hopefully we can replace him."
