Paul Scholes

Where is Paul Scholes now?

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes first retired from playing after his side won the league in the 2010-2011 season.

A long, glittering career resulted in Scholes winning virtually every team competition with Manchester United.

Often criticised for his tough tackling (he received four red cards in the Premier League), his workrate, passing and skills on the pitch have many labelling him the best English player to have played in the Premier League.

Scholes often admitted that he may have retired too soon therefore it was no surprise when he announced in January 2012 that he would be re-signing for Manchester United for the remainder of the season.

He was a revelation upon his return and played so well that he committed himself to a further year playing.

Paul Scholes retired again at the end of the 2012-13 season at the same time as Sir Alex Ferguson left the club.

He was immediately offered a coaching role by new manager David Moyes but turned it down as he wanted to take time out from football to spend with his family.

In April 2014 Scholes was back in football assisting caretaker manager Ryan Giggs when he took over first team duties after the dismissal of David Moyes.

Paul Scholes is currently employed as an outspoken pundit and game analyst across the football broadcasting networks.

He also writes a football column for The Independent newspaper.

In June 2016, Paul Scholes made a brief return to football to play in the inaugural 10 day Indian Premier Futsal league as one their marquee players.
