Report: Scholes to Call it Quits Again at Season's End

MOST COMMENTED

The Sun is reporting that Manchester United legend Paul Scholes will retire for good at the end of the 2012-2013 season. The 38-year-old midfielder has apparently told people close to him that this time there is no going back.

Scholes retired at the end of the 2010-2011 season, which saw United win a record 19th title, but after taking up a role coaching the reserves, he badly missed playing with the first team and believed he still had something to offer. The midfielder made his comeback as a substitute in Manchester United’s FA Cup victory over Manchester City on Jan. 8 and went on to play a big part in United’s title race last season. Having only started seven games so far this year, Scholes is believed to be ready to hang up his boots for good.

His trophy haul includes 10 Premier League titles, two UEFA Champions League titles and three FA Cups. Zinedine Zidane, Edgar Davids and Xavi have all said that Scholes is the best midfielder they had ever faced. He has made 710 appearances in all competitions for United, since making his debut in a League Cup match at Port Vale in 1994.
