Yes Indian readers, you read that right, a Manchester United legend is headed there so keep an eye out for a certain “genius” in the streets!
Manchester United and England legend Paul Scholes has signed a three year marquee deal to play in India’s upcoming indoor football league, Premier Football, the inaugural season of which is set to start next month.
The league is set to cover major parts of India including but not limited to Kolkata, Mumbai and the capital, New Delhi.
The famed number 18 of the Red Devils won an impressive 25 trophies in 499 appearances, and has publicly praised futsal claiming that he has played in “a few of these tournaments.” It would indeed be interesting to see what he can bring to the game after so many years.
