Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes says he has yet to decide whether the coming season will be his last as a player.
Scholes signed a one-year contract extension at the end of last season and the 2010/11 campaign was predicted to be his swansong.
The 35-year-old recently admitted that he 'probably' has one year left in his career, but is now keeping an open mind regarding his playing future.
The former England international, who is fourth on United's list of all-time appearances for the club, is merely trying to focus on playing and may delay a decision on retirement until the end of the season.
"I do not know if it will be my last season," he said. "I will just take every game as it comes.
"If I am feeling okay and doing the job that the manager wants me to do then we will see how things are at the end of next season. Hopefully next season will be another good one for me."
United are currently on their pre-season tour in the United States and Scholes is confident the hot conditions across the Atlantic will reap their benefits during the course of the campaign.
"Pre-season is always a busy time of the year for us because we're focused on getting set for the start of the season," he added on the club's official website.
"We are doing lots of training in very hot conditions, but hopefully that will stand us in a good stead for when the season begins.
"As far as next season goes we want to get back on track. Hopefully we'll have better luck with injuries and win some more trophies."
