Sir Alex Ferguson has today confirmed that Paul Scholes will continue playing for United next season. It was always likely that he would agree to play for another season, as there would be little point in coming out for retirement for just a few months more football. Importantly, Scholes proved that he’s still up to scratch and was arguably our best player since January.

Scholes’ reason for retiring was being unhappy at playing less football but after being on the coaching staff and playing no football, he quickly realised playing a bit is better than not playing at all.

See you next season, Scholesy.
