Paul Scholes announces his retirement
Paul Scholes, now 38, has announced his retirement from football for the second time with Manchester United. This time it is for good.
Scholes will, hopefully, take to the Old Trafford turf for the final time against Swansea City on Sunday, a sad day for all Manchester United faithful as Sir Alex Ferguson’s last home game before he goes into retirement.
Ferguson hopes to play Paul Scholes at some point during the game.
Speaking with the official website, he said:
Sir Alex Ferguson said:
“Paul is a truly unbelievable player. He has always been fully committed to this club and it has been a real privilege to work with him for so many years. Paul will play at Old Trafford on Sunday against Swansea and will collect an unbelievable but well-deserved 11th Premier League medal.”
Paul Scholes regarding his retirement said:
“Yes, I am finally hanging up my boots for good! Playing football is all I have ever wanted to do, and so to have had such a long and successful career at Manchester United, under the greatest Manager of all time, has been an honour. The team has the right balance and will continue to thrive under the leadership of David Moyes.”
