Today he becomes 38 years old, or rather, young. His quality on a football pitch belies his age. The legs may succumb to fatigue but his mind refuses to. Poor at Aston Villa last week, his pinpoint pass for Javier Hernández's first of the match nevertheless instigated another memorable United comeback.

During his career up until 2011 and when he retired, Scholes was subjected to a stream of compliments from genuine footballing greats from all over the globe. Here's some of the finest...
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Good enough to play for Brazil. I love to watch Scholes, to see him pass, the boy with the red hair and the red shirt." Socrates

"My toughest opponent? Scholes of Manchester. He is the complete midfielder. Scholes is undoubtedly the greatest midfielder of his generation." Zinedine Zidane

"There isn't a player of his mould anywhere in the world." Glenn Hoddle

"He is the one whose level I aspire to." Cesc Fàbregas

"I tell anyone who asks me – Scholes is the best English player." Laurent Blanc

"An amazingly gifted player who remained an unaffected human being." Roy Keane

"He is simply the best." George Best

"I'm starstruck when I see Scholes because you never see him. On the pitch you can't catch him, off the pitch he disappears." Luis Figo

"Paul Scholes would have been one of my first choices for putting together a great team – that goes to show how highly I have always rated him. An all-round midfielder who possesses quality and character in abundance." Marcello Lippi

"I admire him a huge amount. To me, he is a role model." Xabi Alonso

"His technique is unique." Diego Maradona

"I want to pass like him. Who taught him how to do that?" Ronaldinho

"The best English player? Paul Scholes." Juan Sebastian Verón

"He's an inspiration." Lionel Messi

"The best player I've played with or against." Wayne Rooney

"If he was playing with me, I would have scored so many more." Pelé

"He makes most things happen on the field." Andriy Shevchenko

"Even when I'm playing with Real Madrid, the players always say to me 'what's he like?'" David Beckham

"One of the best in the world. Manchester United are lucky to have him." José Mourinho

"He is the best I've played with. He is amazing." Cristiano Ronaldo

"He is the best midfielder of his generation. I would have loved to have played alongside him." Pep Guardiola

"He is my favourite player." Thierry Henry

"He is the most consistent and naturally gifted player we've had for a long, long time." Alan Shearer

"Many great players have worn the shirt of Manchester United. Players I worshipped, then lost with my youth in Munich. Players like Denis Law and George Best who I enjoyed so much as team-mates and now, finally, players I have watched closely in the Alex Ferguson era. And in so many ways Scholes is my favourite." Sir Bobby Charlton

"The best player of his generation." Rio Ferdinand

"In the last 15 to 20 years the best central midfielder that I have seen — the most complete — is Scholes. I have spoken with Xabi Alonso about this many times. Scholes is a spectacular player who has everything." Xavi

Gerrard on wednesday before the Sweden friendly also said he is the best player he has played with.

Those quotes basically speak for themselves.

Sadly, I only watched him after he turned 30, but the sheer level of consistency he displayed over the years makes him one of the greats for me. :bow:

Don't think there's a player who can be compared to ol' Scholesy.

He is definitely under appreciated, the main reason why united won so many trophies... For me he is the best CM of his generation.

Yeah can't really add more to those quotes. Scholes is a baller, shame he couldn't be surrounded by real players at international level.

England had decent enough talent, just bad management overall deploying Scholes out left to accommodate Gerrard & Lampard to settle in the middle is what hurt them most imo

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has announced his retirement for a second time.

The 38-year-old first ended his career at the end of the 2010-11 season but returned to the side in January 2012 after admitting he missed playing.
Scholes signed a one-year deal last May and manager Sir Alex Ferguson expected this would be his final season.

"I am finally hanging up my boots for good," said Scholes, who is expected to play against Swansea on Sunday.


He added: "Playing football is all I have ever wanted to do, and to have had such a long and successful career at Manchester United, under the greatest manager of all time, has been an honour."

Ferguson said: "Paul is a truly unbelievable player. He has always been fully committed to this club and it has been a real privilege to work with him for so many years.

"Paul will play at Old Trafford on Sunday against Swansea and will collect an unbelievable but well-deserved 11th Premier League medal."

A great player for United.

But didnt do sh*t for his country, and thats why we cant call him a All Time great football legend.

It's no wonder, Cronaldo's free kick accuracy is diabolical

Paul Scholes has left Oldham Athletic with immediate effect, after just seven games in charge of the League Two club.

The former Manchester United and England midfielder took over as Oldham boss on February 11, and leaves the club after just 31 days in charge at Boundary Park.

Scholes won his first match at the helm of his hometown club, but subsequently drew three and lost three games during his brief spell in charge.
