Club career

Born in Salford, Lancashire, England, Scholes was brought up an Oldham Athletic supporter, but has trained with Manchester United since the age of 14[3]. He then later joined as a trainee upon leaving the Cardinal Langley Roman Catholic High School, Middleton, Greater Manchester in the summer of 1991. Contrary to popular belief, he was not a member of Manchester United's 1992 FA Youth Cup-winning squad, but he was part of the youth team that reached the final in the following season. Scholes turned professional on 23 July 1993, but did not make his breakthrough into the Old Trafford team until the 1994–95 season, when he made 17 league appearances and scored five goals. His debut for the senior squad came on 21 September 1994, where he scored twice in a 3-2 victory over Port Vale in the League Cup. The 20-year-old Scholes proved himself to be a promising understudy for the likes of Eric Cantona and Andrew Cole and by 1996-97, Scholes reinvented himself somewhat from a striker to that of a midfielder and forward attacker, reknowned for his slick passing and sharp mind in the game. However, this confusion about Scholes' natural positioning meant he was unable to secure a regular first team place until the 1997–98 season, when he played officially in midfield after the ninth game when Roy Keane was ruled out by injury.

In 1998–99, Scholes was a key player in Manchester United's Premiership title, FA Cup, and UEFA Champions League "Treble" success. He scored one of United's two goals against Newcastle in the FA Cup final. He also scored a vital away goal at the San Siro against Inter Milan in the quarter-final of the Champions League, but was ruled out of the final victory over Bayern Munich through suspension.

Established player

Since then, Scholes has established himself as a world class midfield playmaker at the club level and for country. He became a key player in the Manchester United squad. Scholes generally played as a central attacking midfielder during his longstanding midfield partnership with Roy Keane, where Keane would drop deep and Scholes would push forward in a diamond formation. However since the departure of Keane he has shifted into a more conventional central midfielder, but still playing a more attacking role than defensive. MUFC redirects here. ...


One of the well known features of Paul's game is his high level of passing.

Paul's shooting has also been hailed by the fans and media alike. His goal-scoring record has diminished in recent seasons and it's highly unlikely he'll regain the goalscoring form he had during the 2002-03 season when he netted 20 goals in all competitions, including a hat-trick away to Newcastle and a 25 yard screamer off the underside of the bar against Everton.


In 14 years as a first team player at Manchester United, Paul Scholes has won eight Premiership titles, three FA Cups, two UEFA Champions League titles, and the Intercontinental Cup, amongst many other personal achievements. As of April 30 2008, he has scored 139 goals for Manchester United FC in his club career. No other Englishman has scored more goals in the Champions League than Paul Scholes.

Unlike other modern footballers, Scholes does not have an agent and negotiates deals on his own behalf. He rarely gives interviews or accepts advertising contracts.[citation needed]


Later Days

Scholes' retirement from England helped revive his club form in 2005. However, he was ruled out for the second half of the 2005–06 season with blurred vision. The cause of this was initially uncertain, at first leaving Scholes' career in the balance.[4] He overcame this problem through the beginning of the year and he appeared in United's final game of the 2005–06 season, against Charlton Athletic. Reportedly, Scholes' vision has not completely recovered.[5] Year 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link displays full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Inspired goalscoring form during late 2006 and early 2007 saw players from rival Premiership teams tip Scholes to be named Footballer of the Year. Thierry Henry and Cesc Fabregas of Arsenal F.C., and Luis Garcia of Liverpool F.C., all said he was the player that they most admired. Many commentators have said that Scholes was their personal player of the year, over the high scoring Cristiano Ronaldo and Didier Drogba,[citation needed] although he eventually finished third behind these two, with Ronaldo claiming the top prize. He also made it into the PFA Team of the year alongside 7 of his fellow team-mates. In one edition of Match Of The Day Lee Dixon claimed that Paul Scholes was the best footballer in the Premiership.

Paul Scholes was ruled out of action until the end of January 2008, after scan results showed he had suffered knee ligament damage. He sustained the injury after turning awkwardly in training the night before United's Champions League Group F clash with Dynamo Kiev on Tuesday 23 October 2007. Scholes made his long awaited return coming on as a substitute in United's 3-1 win against Tottenham Hotspur in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

International career

Scholes made his international début against South Africa in 1997 in a 2-1 friendly win at Old Trafford, and was included in the England squad for the 1998 World Cup. England were grouped with Columbia, Tunisia and Romania. During England's first World Cup group match against Tunisia, Scholes sealed a 2-0 victory with a goal late in the game. Picking up a pass from Paul Ince just outside the Tunisian area, Scholes pushed the ball slightly to his right and hit a shot with his right foot which curled into the top right-hand corner of Tunisian keeper El Ouaer's net. Old Trafford (given the nickname The Theatre of Dreams by Sir Bobby Charlton) is an all-seater football stadium in the Greater Manchester borough of Trafford, and is the home of Manchester United F.C.. The ground has been Uniteds permanent home since 1910, bar an eight year absence... 1998 World Cup redirects here. ...


His international career continued after England's World Cup 98 elimination by Argentina on penalties in the first knock-out round. Scholes managed a hat-trick for England in a game against Poland. In addition, Scholes scored both goals in England's 2-0 win at Hampden Park over Scotland in the Euro 2000 Play-off first leg, sealing a 2-1 aggregate win and qualification for Euro 2000. When he was sent off against Sweden at Wembley Stadium in 1999, he became the first English player to ever be dismissed on home soil. Given that the stadium has now been demolished he will, therefore, forever be the only England player to have received a red card in England's 223 matches at the old stadium.[7] The 2000 UEFA European Championship, or Euro 2000, was the 11th edition of the UEFA European Championship, a competition between the national football teams of Europe held every four years and organised by UEFA, footballs governing body in Europe. ...

With the turn of the century, Scholes became a prominent player in England's midfield. He started for England in the 2002 World Cup, wearing the number 8 jersey. However, after the World Cup, Scholes saw his opportunities in the national team decline due to Sven Goran Eriksson playing him out of position, following his goal scoring drought for England, to accommodate the pairing of Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard in midfield. Scholes announced his retirement from international football in August 2004, citing his family life and his club career with Manchester United as being more important. He has three times turned down the opportunity to come out of retirement and reclaim his position in the England squad under former manager Steve McClaren and current boss Fabio Capello. 2002 World Cup redirects here. ...

Scholes was unlucky to miss a crucial penalty in the penalty shootout during the 2004–05 FA Cup final against Arsenal.
