Paul Scholes Return to Football Suffers Blow after Knee Injury


Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes has revealed that his knee is “f***ed” after his appearance in the Soccer Aid charity match between England and World XI recently.

Scholes was introduced as a substitute midway through the match, and managed to turn the game on its head with a classic strike into the bottom-right corner from outside the box to put England 2-1 up.


However, just four minutes later, he was forced off with a knee issue after a collision with former United pal Nani.

Scholes’ knee injury has come at a time when he was set to make his return to professional football with Salford City. It has come as a blow to Salford City themselves, who were hoping to see him return to the pitch.

The 48-year-old was set to return to the club as a player-coach, but the injury could put a stop to those plans.

The injury has not been the only talking point from Soccer Aid, prior to the match, Scholes was furious about the blue and white flags that had been put out in the Old Trafford stands.

He believed that they were too similar to the colours of United’s rivals, Manchester City, who had won the Treble the previous night.

However, the flags were merely there to represent the colours of UNICEF, the charity behind Soccer Aid.
