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

Scholes Calls It A Day!

As suspected by many, Paul Scholes has decided to hang up his boots.

Scholes, who may believed was going to announce his decision before the Champions League Final but was, supposedly, persuaded to wait until after, has decided that after 676 appearances and 150 goals, enough is enough.

Scholes, who has won 10 Premier League titles with United since making his debut in 1994, is expected to join the United coaching staff.

Talking about his decision, Scholes has remarked,

"This was not a decision I`ve taken lightly but I feel now is the right time for me to stop playing."

"I am not a man of many words but I can honestly say that playing football is all I ever wanted to do and to have had such a long and successful career at Manchester United has been a real honour."

"To have been part of the team that helped the club reach that 19th title is a great privilege."


On behalf of everyone at Vital Manchester United, I`d like to thank Paul for everything he`s done for this club, his presence on the playing field will be sorely missed!

A footballing phenom. So many people, no matter their background, have nothing to say but good words when it comes to Scholes, it really shows how much of a professional, role model and great player he is. Possibly the best CM to grace the English game and set-up and no doubt a footballing legend to all. No-one will forget his trademark, pinpoint passes or magnificent strikes of the ball that left so many mesmerized by the sheer quality that is Paul Scholes. A player who will come perhaps once a generation with only 2 players capable of replicating his skill: Xavi, arguably the best CM in the world at current and Sneijder, the best CAM in the world at the moment. Xavi, Iniesta and Zidane to name a few have admitted to how great he truly is. Honestly, there's not enough words to describe how brilliant Scholes is.

I'm happy to hear he's becoming a coach. He will really help the next generation and even the current players improve their game and we will hopefully see more like him in the future. I must admit I was sceptical about whether once he retired that was it for his football chapter mainly due to him keeping himself to himself but am pleasently surprised and glad to be wrong to hear him going into coaching.

the Premier League heaves a sigh of relief - no more late challenges - lol, no seriously he's been a great servant to football!

Gooner here. Great player. And fantastic servant to Man Utd.

The club have done the right thing in keeping him at old trafford in a coaching capacity, as someone who came through our youth system and who went on to achieve all he has while at the one club our future youth players will be in awe of him.
