Paul Scholes Biography

An experienced midfield player who is one of the outstanding midfielders of his generation and a Manchester United legend, having spent his entire career with the Old Trafford club.

In his prime he was one of the best attacking midfielders in the game, boasting technical ability rarely found in home grown players and a goalscoring record more befitting of a striker.

While advancing years have limited his ability to wreak quite as much havoc in opposing penalty areas, his wonderful range of passing still allows him to control games from a deeper-lying role as he has continued to star for United into his mid-thirties, with his decision to come out of retirement after just six months was justified by a fantastic second half to his 2011-12 season.

Paul began training with the Reds as a 14-year-old before joining the club as a trainee and becoming part of a youth team also featuring the likes of David Beckham and Gary Neville. He was one of the last from that team to break through into the senior ranks, making his debut in September 1994, but soon established himself as a key part of Sir Alex Ferguson’s plans and has remained as such ever since, amassing a staggering collection of silverware, including nine Premier League winners’ medals.

Cruelly suspended for the 1999 Champions League final, his involvement in the 2008 triumph over Chelsea in Moscow is perhaps the highlight of a glittering career.

Paul is one of just four players to have appeared over 600 times for the United first team, and he also accumulated 64 caps for England prior to his retirement from international football in 2004.
