Manchester United legend Bryan Robson worries that Paul Scholes may have to retire in the summer due to injury, according to the
The 38-year-old has struggled with knee injuries this season and has made only nine starts for United in all competitions as Sir Alex Ferguson’s men waltz to the Premier League title.
And while Robson believes team mate Ryan Giggs still has plenty to give the club, he fears Scholes could be forced to hang up his boots for good.
Robson said: “Giggsy has got another year, but he looks as fit as he was when he was 21. Scholesy I’m not so sure about. He’s been having a few problems with his knee. So I think he might just call it a day.
“Only he can answer whether or not he may register again in case of emergencies. But because of his attitude and the way he goes about training it is good to have him around the place.”
Scholes, who won 66 caps for England, initially retired from football in 2011, only to return to Old Trafford six months later when the club suffered from a midfield injury crisis.
He has made over 700 appearances for Manchester United, scoring 155 goals.
