United - Scholes on Retiring!

United - Scholes on Retiring!

It was a general assumption that Paul Scholes would, quite possibly, be looking at retirement at the end of this season.

Many even suspected that the long-term campaigner might even have called it a day at the end of last season.

But, after two back-to-back match winning performances Scholes has shown that he can still live with the best of them in that essential area of the park, midfield.

Speaking about his future, to the media, Scholes has been very forthright, honest and open, suggesting that it is too early to contemplate what will happen at the end of the season but inferring that if he can maintain this performance level he may well be tempted to carry on when he remarks on possible retirement,

"I haven`t set any limits."

"I`ll just keep on going, hopefully keep playing well and getting in the team, and just see where it goes from there."

"It depends on performances and how you play. I did go through last season thinking this might be the last time I played against this team or stuff like that."

"But I just don`t know. My performances will decide when I finish."

"At 35, I thought that would be it. From being young and first getting into the squad you just presume everyone will finish at 35 and that`s it."

"Whatever you do after that is a bonus. At the end of last season I felt okay and hopefully this season I will do so as well."


Scholes is proving that age is no barrier and that looking after yourself throughout your career can have positive consequences. Com this time next year we could well be having this same conversation as Scholes continues to dictate the pace from the middle of the park, or is that just wishful thinking?

Not wishfull thinking at all. He may lose pace and fitness but all those other skills in his artillery are permanent. He is Englands best midfielder and still does his talking on the pitch rather than mock and slander in the newspapers. A true professional.
