According to the Manchester Evening News, former club captain and legend Bryan Robson, fears that Paul Scholes may be set for retirement at the end of the season. Scholes made a dramatic return to United in the 3-2 victory over Manchester City in last season’s FA Cup.
Sadly, Scholes’ return didn’t help towards United’s title surge, losing out to City in the final seconds of the final day. United’s midfield genius last played in the 4-1 FA Cup victory over Fulham in January. Scholes is in third in the all time appearances for Manchester United, but trails Bobby Charlton – who is in second place – by 42 apps.
Do you think Scholes’ time is up?
Ahead of the trip to Stoke City on Sunday, Robson was discussing the futures of Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes:
“Giggsy has got another year but he looks as fit as he was when he was 21. Scholesy I’m not so sure about. He’s been having a few problems with his knee. So I think he might just call it a day.Only he can answer whether or not he may register again in case of emergencies. But because of his attitude and the way he goes about training it is good to have him around the place.”
