Man Utd legend Scholes: Right time to retire

Paul Scholes thanked Manchester United fans after announcing his retirement yesterday.

Scholes received a rapturous reception from the Red Devils fans having helped the club to 11 Premier League titles.

And the midfielder said afterwards: "It's been a good day. We won the game and that's all that matters. We've picked the trophy up and we'll celebrate tonight.

"I haven't played for four or five months so it was just nice to get through the game and win it.

"I thought it went quite well. You thought it would have been quite emotional for him (Ferguson) but he spoke well at the end of the game and he has done a fantastic job here, that goes without saying.

"He's just happy now and is looking forward to what the team are going to do next year and hopefully we can go on from here and win more trophies."

On his retirement, he said: "I know it's the right time. It's not the season I would like to have had but we've won a trophy and that's all that matters to the team.

"It's a great day. We won the game and won the league."
