Paul Scholes has retired from football after playing at Manchester United for his entire career.

The midfielder played 676 football games for the Red Devils in his illustrious career, which included FA Cup, Champions League, League Cup and Premier League victories.

Scholes has opted to embark on a coaching role with Manchester United from the start of the next campaign, with his testimonial scheduled for August.

Speaking on his decision, Scholes said: "I am not a man of many words but I can honestly say that playing football is all I have ever wanted to do and to have had such a long and successful career at Manchester United has been a real honour."

Scholes also emphasised that it was a real privilege to help the team collect their 19th league title.

His last appearance for Manchester United took place in Saturday's (May 28th) Champions League final, where Barcelona won 3-1.
