Paul Scholes will come out of retirement to participate in a Futsal tournament in India
Scholes, who played for Manchester United from 1992 to 2011, then again after a brief retirement from 2012 until 2013, won 25 trophies at Old Trafford, before ending his career upon Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season as manager.
The midfielder informally assisted with the youth team at United after his retirement, and briefly worked under Ryan Giggs when the Welshman became interim manager for four games in 2013.
Scholes has since concentrated on Salford City, the club he bought with other members of the famed Class of ’92, but has now been tempted to return to playing.
Premier Futsal, a tournament backed by Indian cricket star Virat Kohli and Portugal legend Luis Figo, announced that the 41-year-old would join to boost its popularity.
Deco and iconic Futsal player Falcao – not the bad one – have also signed to partake in the five-a-side competition, which will be played in eight cities in India between July 15 and July 24.
