Scholes Tempted?

Although he may have officially announced his retirement, articles keep emerging that infer Paul Scholes had several options open to him.

With the main reason for his retirement being a perceived lack of regular first team action allied with an anticipated inability to attain the high physical standards he`d set himself, Scholes admits that the idea of moving to another club may well have crossed his mind.

Scholes, renowned for being a life-long Oldham Athletic fan, even contemplated fulfilling a childhood dream with the latest addition to our coaching staff remarking,

"Had I still felt great physically, I would have probably played on and Oldham would have been a possibility."

"The decision I made to retire was just the way I was feeling. If I couldn`t go to another club, play well and contribute, I didn`t see the point of carrying on."


We reckon Scholes did a lot of deep-thinking before finally hanging those boots up. Whether it was the right decision in the end only Paul will know.

I reckon he could've quite easily signed for a team in a less physically demanding league, heck, I'm sure he could've signed for another year with us or another Premier League team.
