Manchester United legend Paul Scholes signs for The Independent to write exclusive column
Former England star will write column every week
Thursday 07 August 2014
The Independent today unveils the biggest signing of the summer – Manchester United legend Paul Scholes.
One of England’s most revered footballers, Scholes is to write exclusively for The Independent, and its sister paper i, throughout the new football season.
The former midfielder will give his frank, honest and forthright opinions each week – and, in true Scholes style, has promised to pull no punches.
He said: “It’s a privilege to be writing for these newspapers and to be sharing my views as all the drama unfolds. I can’t wait for the season to start. As a player I always gave 100 per cent – and that’s how I’m going to be as a columnist.”
In an exclusive interview with The Independent tomorrow, Scholes reveals his fears for the next generation of talent in England.
His column tackling the biggest subjects in football will be published online every Friday and begins next week.
