Manchester United balls: Paul Scholes is middle-aged

by | 6th, September 2016

Paul Scholes says, “‘I would rather watch Salford than Man Utd.” Well, that’s the Daily Mirror‘s lead sports story.




Can the former Manchester United star be dissing his old club? Yes.

Paul Scholes says he would rather watch Salford City than Manchester United in damning assessment of Premier League

It’s not that Salford are that good; it’s that United are that bad!

Over in the Mail, we get to know what Scholes said;

After taking over at Salford City, alongside his old United team-mates Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Nicky Butt and Ryan Giggs, the 41-year-old has been able to take in more games from lower down the league pyramid.

He enjoys watching his business and investment.

He says:

“I probably do enjoy watching Salford more,’ he wrote in a new book – Class of 92: Out of our League – Our Journey Back to the Heart of the Game – currently being serialised in The Guardian. “I don’t know if it’s as much that I don’t like the hassle of going to the game, getting in, sitting in traffic. Going to Salford, I park up behind the goal and get out of my car.”


Conclusion: can United let middle-aged Scholes park in the players’ car park and get him a travel rug?
