Manchester United Legend Paul Scholes Opens Door to Playing Return at 40

Paul Scholes has opened the door to a second return to football.

The Manchester United legend has already retired and came back to the game once – doing so in 2012 after initially hanging up his boots at the end of the 2010/11 season.

He was brought back by Sir Alex Ferguson and went on to play for another season-and-a-half before calling it a day.

But he’s seriously open to making another comeback – according to Manchester Evening News showbiz reporter Katie Fitzpatrick.

She was in attendance at a special screening of the new ‘Class of 92: Out of their League’ documentary, which focuses on Gary and Phil Neville, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Ryan Giggs all banding together to takeover Salford City FC.

As well as offering more great insight into the documentary, including how David Beckham was approached to join them in the takeover, Scholes was asked about a playing return and refused to rule it out:

Imagine another comeback for Scholes? We’re pretty sure it would have to come for Salford City rather than United again given Louis van Gaal has just spent the summer beefing up his midfield options with the signings of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin.
