Scholes Calls It Quits

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has decided to end his football playing career by retiring from the game at the age of 36.

Not another one
Paul has made 676 appearances for the red devils since making his debut in 1994. He has now decided the champions league final will have been his last game and he will now follow Gary Neville's path and join the coaching team at Old Trafford.

His retirement comes after helping United win their 19th title, which was a very proud moment for Paul Scholes as it was the 10th Premier league title of his career, a remarkable acheivement.

At the end of last year Scholes was offered a place in the England international squad for the South Africa world cup but he felt he wasn't given long enough to think about it so he turned it down, a decision he now says he regrets. However he does not feel he will regret the decision to retire from the game now.

"I am not a man of many words but I can honestly say that playing football is all I have ever wanted to do and to have had such a long and successful career at Manchester United has been a real honour.
"To have been part of the team that helped the club reach that 19th title is a great privilege."
