Overview

Lavishly illustrated, this is the first autobiography of one of the most revered and popular soccer players of the modern era Paul Scholes is one of the most celebrated footballers of today, both at home and internationally. A one-club player, he has served Manchester United for more than sixteen years, making over 600 appearances in that time—the fourth highest number of appearances by any player for the club. He also represented the England national team for seven years, winning 66 caps that included two World Cup and two European Cup campaigns. Throughout this time, Scholes has always played a decisive role in his teams' fortunes. As well as the technical brilliance that makes Paul Scholes such a breathtaking player to watch, it is the determination and integrity which he demonstrates both on and off the pitch that means he is a fascination to fans of the sport. In an age of overpaid, workaday players, Scholes has become an icon of professionalism and club loyalty, admired by fans everywhere. Now, for the first time, Paul Scholes shares his story—from his beginnings at United under the tutelage of Sir Alex Ferguson as part of the "golden" youth team, to the treble-winning season and twice capturing European Cup glory, the importance of family and friends in keeping his feet on the ground, as well as his many triumphs and tribulations with England.
