Yesterday saw the return of the Ginger Prince, Paul Scholes to the EPL. Rumors of a return to football were spreading like wildfire a few months ago and fans were hoping that they were true but United manager quickly defused the rumors as false.
Manchester United has been lacking creativity in midfield this season after the injury of Tom Cleverley and a dip in form from Anderson, United also had to deal with the long term absence of Darren Fletcher who could possibly be out for the rest of the season.
With the obvious void in midfield fans were pleading with their club to go out and buy a player who they think can make an instant impact in midfield, many names were tossed up but the most talked about was Wesley Sneijder but Sir Alex Ferguson said he won’t be buying anyone come January.
However in stunning fashion Scholes made his return against noisy neighbors Manchester City in the FA Cup where he made 71 passes with a 97% completion rate, which was more than any Man City player in the entire game. The return of Scholes is a telling sign to the likes of Darron Gibson and Anderson that they need to get better fast or they could be on their way out of Old Trafford.
