Scholes Not Planning To Quit Yet
Manchester United's veteran midfielder Paul Scholes has insisted that just because he is approaching his 36th birthday, it does not mean that he intends to hang up his boots any time in the near future.
Scholes first appeared for United at the age of 17 in 1994 and went on to become one of the club's most important players, starring as an attacking midfielder and forward before moving further back into the centre of the pitch as he has got older and the playmaker has gone on to make nearly 650 first team appearances for the Red Devils.
The former England player is still going strong though, playing starring roles in both of Manchester United's games so far, against Chelsea in the community shield and Newcastle in their Premier League opener.
Despite being at an age where most players are considering a life after football, Scholes has yet again proved that he is not like most players.
"I haven't set any limits," said Scholes after his starring role in Monday's 3-0 demolition of Newcastle.
"I'll just keep going, hopefully keep playing well and getting in the team and just see where it goes from there.
"It depends on performances and how you play. I did go through last season thinking this might be the last time I played against this team or stuff like that. But I just don't know. My performances will decide when I finish.
"At 35 I thought that would be it. From being young and first getting into the squad, you just presume everyone will finish at 35 and that's it. Whatever you do after that is a bonus.
"At the end of last season I felt okay and hopefully this season I will do as well."
Manchester United are currently 9/4 with Eurosportbet to win the Premier League, with Victor Chandler offering 15/8 and Ladbrokes 2/1 at the moment.
