Today: Manchester United’s Paul Scholes Has Ended His Playing Career Aged 36

Midfielder Scholes made his Manchester United debut in 1994, has made over 670 appearances, and will now join the coaching staff. His retirement came after he helped the club win a record 19th league title, and his last game was Saturday’s Champions League final loss to Barcelona.

  • 676 Man Utd appearances, 150 goals
  • 66 England caps, 14 goals
  • Premier League winner: 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011
  • FA Cup: 1996, 1999, 2004
  • Champions League: 2008
  • League Cup: 2009, 2010
  • PFA Team of the Year: 2003, 2007
  • 18th highest scorer in Premier League history (102 goals)
  • 4th most booked player in Premier League history (87 times)

Having seen Scholes play (on telly, can’t afford an actual ticket to a real game!) I can confirm that he certainly made an effort… mostly in kicking the hell out of anyone trying to get past him! Roy Keane was his mentor I believe? ‘Nuff said!
