VIDEO: Former Manchester United star scores from own half, but who?

With the Manchester United midfield not quite clicking at the moment I bet they would take this man back in a heartbeat.

The Manchester United midfield has lacked a bit of creativity during the start of the season, the kind of creativity vision and skill that a certain Paul Scholes still has according to this latest video.

In it, the United Legend can be seen scoring from his own half in a friendly between Chadderton Park Legends and Chadderton Park Veterans, proving that he’s still got it after he retired for the second time during the summer.

Scholes who made 718 appearances for the Red Devils scoring 155 times, will forever be remembered as part of the 'Class of 92' with the release of the film by the same title released this week, during his 20 years at the club he won numerous titles including11 Premier League titles and two Champions League trophies, despite missing the famous 1999 final through suspension.

All was not as rosy as it seems though with one fans shouting: “We still remember the own goal” referring to an earlier incident which sadly wasn’t caught on camera, Scholes turned the fan and in his usual shy fashion, smiled and refused to make comment.
