Paul Scholes has signed up for a (second) final season at Manchester United, with the club having registered the 36-year-old until May. It’s a surprise turnaround for a player who retired after United’s loss to Barcelona in the Champions League final last year.
Fans and pundits have questioned whether Scholes will be a success second time around. After all, the veteran midfielder admitted in May that his ‘legs had gone’. Some have pointed to the player’s return as evidence that Sir Alex Ferguson is being restricted in the transfer market.
Yet, player, manager and team-mates expressed delight at Scholes’ decision to return, after the midfielder made a 31 minute cameo against Manchester City on Sunday.
Do you think Scholes’ return will be a success?
