Paul Scholes: This time it's for good

Paul Scholes has said it was "an honour" to have spent his career at Manchester United and insisted he was quitting for good this time.

Yes, I am finally hanging up my boots for good! Playing football is all I have ever wanted to do, and so to have had such a long and successful career at Manchester United, under the greatest manager of all time, has been an honour.

The team has the right balance and will continue to thrive under the leadership of David Moyes.
