Manchester United legend scores amazing five-a-side goal

Published 6 Comments

Paul Scholes earned the moniker 'Sat Nav' during his time with Manchester United given his unerring ability to find his intended target when with the ball at his feet. He may have been retired for a few months, but these are clearly skills he still possesses.

The 39-year-old lowered the curtain on his illustrious career, for a second time, at the end of last season having clinched the Premier League title for the 11th time, but can still be seen strutting his stuff at amateur level.

His latest outing came in a five-a-side charity match between Chadderton Park Legends v Chaddy Park Veterans in an over-35s league, and Scholes was able to demonstrate his exquisite ability in one particularly jaw-dropping instance.

The Chadderton Park Sports Club may be a far cry from an outing with Manchester United at Old Trafford, but let us not take anything away from Scholes as he found the net with a wonderful strike from distance.

With the ball being passed around quite nicely by the opposition, Scholes appears seemingly out of nowhere to impose his authority on proceedings. The Manchester United icon manages to win possession before beating the goalkeeper from his own half. Lovely stuff.
