Paul Scholes Ends Man Utd Career With a Trademark Scholesy Goal

It was a fitting tribute to Paul Scholes’s final game for Manchester United. The ginger haired midfielder scored a trademark goal from 20 yards in his testimonial against the New York Cosmos (see above video).

“I hope I have left the fans with a few decent memories,” he said. “I’d like to thank the manager, my team-mates, the coaching staff. I cannot say how grateful I am to them. It has been a great pleasure. They have all been brilliant with me, and so have the fans, right from the start of my career.

“It has been a special night, but I am glad it’s over, really. I would say thanks to the fans for being so amazing and that I am just looking forward to being one of them now, and watching this team go on to win more trophies.”

Manchester United went on to win the friendly 6-0 with goals by Wayne Rooney, Anderson, Danny Welbeck and Mame Biram Diouf (2).
