Manchester United’s Sir Alex Ferguson Tells Paul Scholes To Postpone Retirement
Fergie wants the midfielder back next season…
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has hinted that a new contract offer awaits Paul Scholes at season’s end when his current deal expires.
‘The Ginger Prince’, who turns 35 in November, has relegated Michael Carrick to the bench due to his good form, and Ferguson figures he has at least one more season’s worth of midfield mastery left in his tank.
“I don’t think this is Paul’s last season, not the way that he plays. He is not the type to burst in to the penalty box any more, is he?” Ferguson said, referring to the deeper role that Scholes now occupies for United.
“It’s difficult to say [how long he can go on] because it’s still only September, but I am seeing the fresh Scholesy and the best time to use him is when he is fresh.” (Goal.com)
If this was Lethal Weapon and Paul Scholes was Danny Glover then something truly crazy will happen just minutes before he is about to hand in his retirement notice, but as this isn’t Lethal Weapon 5, 6 or 7, it probably won’t.
