Man United will bid farewell not only to their iconic manager next week, but also one of their most iconic modern day footballers as Paul Scholes is expected to retire for the second time, reports The
The 38-year-old former England international initially retired in summer 2011, but returned to play for United in new year 2012 after deciding he had quit too soon.
While Scholes, a one club man throughout his career, has not yet officially announced his return to retirement, it is believed to be an open secret through the corridors at Old Trafford that he will hang up his boots at the end of the season, and take up a new coaching role under incoming United manager David Moyes.
Scholes has not featured for the Red Devils since January after suffering an injury-hit second half of the season, but is believed to be ready to play again when they host Swansea on Sunday, a match that Ferguson previously stated he hoped Scholes would be fit for.
The occasion now looks set to mark the final home games for both Ferguson and Scholes, and is sure to be an emotional afternoon at Old Trafford.
