Paul Scholes is one of the most revered footballers of the modern era, both at home and internationally. A one-club player, he has served Manchester United for more than sixteen years, making over 600 appearances in that time -- the fourth highest number of appearances by any player for the club. He also represented the England national team for seven years, winning 66 caps including two World Cup and two European Cup campaigns. Throughout this time, Scholes has always played a decisive role in his teams' fortunes.
As well as the technical brilliance that makes Paul Scholes such a breathtaking player to watch it is the determination and integrity which he demonstrates both on and off the pitch that means he is a fascination to fans of the sport. In an age of overpaid, workaday players, Scholes has become an icon of professionalism and club loyalty, admired by fans everywhere.
Now in this book for the first time Paul Scholes shares his story: from his beginnings at United under the tutelage of Sir Alex Ferguson as part of the 'golden' youth team, to the treble-winning season and twice capturing European Cup glory, the importance of family and friends in keeping his feet on the ground, as well as his many triumphs and tribulations with England.
This is without question the sports autobiography of 2011, from a player as popular and as revered as any in the game today.
On 31 May 2011, Paul Scholes announced his retirement from professional football. It seemed to be the end of a glittering, 17-year-long career in which this shy, unassuming lad from Salford had amassed 10 Premier League titles, 3 FA Cups, 2 European Cups, as well as appearances for his country at 2 World Cups and 2 European Championships.
But less than a year later, with several of Manchester United's key players injured, he reversed his decision and joined the team for the end of the 2011-2012 season, eventually signing to remain until 2013. Showing no respite, Scholes continues to play with the passion, determination and genius that led many to consider him the best player of his generation.
Drawing on photos from the moments that continue to define his time in the game, this is the story of a career being played at the highest level, as told by a player whose brilliance goes beyond club and country to inspire all who see him.
