Mumbai, June 23: Premier Futsal, the world’s first-ever multi-tiol futsal league, announced on Thursday the signing of former Manchester United star Paul Scholes as a marquee player for three seasons. Scholes is one of those rare English footballers who played their entire professiol careers at a single club. He is one of the most decorated footballers of England and is one of the most successful footballers in English club football. Scholes has won a total of 25 trophies, featuring 11 Premier League titles and two Champions League trophies during his stint with Manchester United. Scholes, part of Manchester United’s memorable squad of 1992 — the famous golden generation which included stars like David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and the Neville brothers Phil and Gary — is widely regarded as one of the greatest midfielders of modern football. He boasts a staggering 718 caps for Manchester United over an illustrious career spanning 22 years.
Scholes thus became the second of the eight marquee players who will be a part of Premier Futsal, a five-a-side variant of football. IANS
