Veteran Man U midfielder Scholes to retire after season end
London: Veteran midfielder Paul Scholes will finally quit football next summer and this time there is no coming back, according to reports.
According to the Sun, the Manchester United legend has told people close to him this is definitely his final season.
Scholes first retired after the 2010-11 campaign, which saw United win a record 19th title. He took up a role coaching the reserves but badly missed match days and training with the first team and believed he still had something to offer.
Scholes made his comeback as a substitute in United’s FA Cup victory over Manchester City on January 8.
Scholes, whose stunning trophy haul includes 10 Premier League crowns, two European Cups and three FA Cups, went on to play a big part as United pulled clear of City in the title race, only to eventually miss out on goal difference.
He was encouraged enough to carry on playing this season but the former England man has started just seven games.
Fellow veteran Ryan Giggs, 39, has also made only seven starts and could follow him into retirement.
