Paul Scholes has confirmed that he will be retiring at the end of this season after coming out of retirement last year. Scholes has played 40 games since returning from retirement but has spent most of this season injured, playing his last game in our FA Cup win over Fulham in January. Scholes is expected to get a run out against Swansea tomorrow so that he can say goodbye to the fans, although will remain at the club as part of the coaching staff.
“Yes, I am finally hanging up my boots for good!” Scholes announced tonight. “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.”
