Manchester United Balls:Paul Scholes – 40 Years Old and Still Got Goals
PAUL Scholes misses the old days when he used to amble about on a football pitch, scoring some goals and scything other humans down who wanted to have a go with the ball.
He misses them so much that he still likes a kickabout. Of course, while all his Man Utd mates are doing really exciting things – The Neville Brothers and Nicky Butt are all coaching, David Beckham is stupidly famous and Ryan Giggs is [comment redacted thanks to injunction] – leaving ol’ Scholesy to wander around Oldham like he’s on the dole.
When he’s not lonesomely peering into shop windows and reading the newspaper in an empty pub, Paul Scholes likes to play 5-a-side with Chadderton Park Legends.
And you know what? He’s gone and scored and absolute peach.
CPL’s opponents – Chaddy Park Vets – must’ve been ruing their luck as they were invariably not used to facing a player who has won actual golden medals for being ace at football.
Have a look at the strike here, from the halfway line and met with typical shrugditude from the Manchester United legend.
