'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United - One Last Season for Scholes?

They say all good things come to an end and rumours abound that the career of Paul Scholes could soon be at an end.

Scholes, now thirty-five, turned down the last gasp opportunity to be part of the England World Cup squad, in South Africa, and now the Oldham lad has hinted that the 2010/2011 season could well be his last in domestic football.

Scholes, who has been part of the fixtures and fittings at Old Trafford since making his United debut in 1994 has been caught on an EPL Talk podcast, remarking,

'I am coming to the end of my playing career - I maybe have one year left."

So come May 2011, will that be the last we see of Paul Scholes? Apparently not, Scholes is keen to continue in the game and he could soon become a familiar figure behind the scenes, as he continues by commenting,

'I have started doing my coaching badges - hopefully one day I'll be able to coach kids or some team somewhere.'

Personally, I find it gratifying that somebody who has been such a great servant of the game and someone who has been handsomely rewarded from it, is keen to give something back to a sport we treasure.

Scholes, ahead of the 2010/2011 season, has already helped United to 9 Premier League titles and 2 Champions League titles, it might be a fitting end to a great career if one last honour could be added to those figures.

However, Scholes, in the same podcast, recognizes that without Sir Alex Ferguson he, or the club, would not be where they are today, explaining,

'It goes without saying what a top manager he has been.'

'The amount of players he has brought through the youth team is great and it gives hope to all the kids in the youth team that if they are good enough he will definitely use them."

'It has just been fantastic working with him and I think there is a good few years left in him yet.'

Does anyone else get the feeling that we`ll be a poorer club when the time does come for Paul Scholes to hang up his playing boots?

He's been a great professional, let's hope this last one is another good one for him!

Not only a great player but a great professional.Has shunned the limelight and basically just played football! One of my favourite United players of all time and he will be sadly missed.The simple fact that he turned down the chance to represent England on the World Cup stage because he didn't take part in getting England there and felt that it would be unjustified to taken the place of someone who did says it all about the lad!!!...

Hopefully his final season is a record breaking 19th title one.
