Man Utd legend Cantona returns for Scholes testimonial

Recently retired Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes will enjoy a testimonial game against New York Cosmos at Old Trafford on August 5. The game will also mark the return of United legend Eric Cantona, now director of football at one of the most famous names in US soccer, who hope to gain an MLS franchise in 2013.

"The plan was for Eric to come back and overshadow me," laughed Scholes.

"Hopefully everyone will be concentrating on him and I can just mosey off somewhere and be out of the way.

"Seriously, the Cosmos are just getting back together again and it seemed a sensible thing to do.

"He was a big influence on a lot of the United lads' careers.

"We grew up watching him and then trained with him. He led by example and it will be great to have him back."
