Widely regarded as the finest midfield playmaker of his generation, Paul Scholes has lit up the English game for more than 15 years with his sublime mix of vision, technical ability and spectacular goals and although he is now in the autumn of his career, he remains one of the most influential players in the Premier League.
Born in Salford in 1974, Scholes began training with Manchester United at the age of 14 and signed turned professional in the summer of 1993. His first team debut came a little over a year later in a League Cup clash with Port Vale, in which he scored twice, and it was not long before the diminutive midfielder had established himself as a regular in the Old Trafford starting line-up.
Scholes' emergence at United coincided with the club's renaissance as a major power in the English game and the silverware flowed as he matured into a world-class performer. To date, Scholes has played a part in eight Premier League title triumphs for the club, as well as three FA Cups and two League Cup.
The low point of his career came in 1999 when he was ruled out of United's famous Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich through suspension but redemption was at hand eight years later when he proudly took to the field in Moscow as part of the United starting line-up that beat Chelsea on penalties.
Scholes was born in Salford and grew up as an Oldham Athletic supporter, but has trained with Manchester United since the age of 14. He then later joined as a trainee upon leaving the Cardinal Langley Roman Catholic High School, Middleton, Greater Manchester in the summer of 1991. In his final term at school, he was selected to represent Great Britain National Schools in football.
Scholes was not a member of Manchester United's 1992 FA Youth Cup-winning squad that included future senior teammates David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs, but he was part of the youth team that reached the final in the following season, alongside Phil Neville .
Scholes turned professional on 23 July 1993, but did not make his breakthrough into the senior squad until the 1994-95 season, when he made seventeen league appearances and scored five goals. His debut came on 21 September 1994, where he scored twice in a 2-1 victory over Port Vale F.C. in the Football League Cup. Scholes came on as a substitute in the 1995 FA Cup final against Everton, which United lost 1-0.
