Paul Scholes, one of the finest players in Manchester United’s history, has come out of retirement once again. The Ginger Prince, now 41, has decided to put pen to paper on a contract to play in India, in their top Futsal league.
Whilst this isn’t anything like playing association football at the top level, it will be absolutely brilliant to see Paul Scholes back in action playing football.
This isn’t the first time that the midfielder has come back from retirement. Back in 2011, he retired from Manchester United Football Club, but then was persuaded to return to action by Sir Alex Ferguson just six months later.
Scholes is one of the greatest players to ever grace the Premier League, and Manchester United fans were lucky to watch his talents for close to twenty years at the highest level.
Recently, Scholes turned into a pundit and over the last year or so was very critical over Louis van Gaal. Now though, he has given Jose Mourinho his complete backing.
“The fans at Man United demand entertaining football and I’m sure Mourinho will come and try and give it,” he said in May.
“I think Mourinho will have watched [Van Gaal’s final year] closely and will have seen what happened,” he added. “He’s a top manager, he’s proven that before and hopefully he can do that again.”
