Football: Scholes backs United for Champions League final

Manchester United great Paul Scholes Saturday backed the struggling English giants to beat Bayern Munich and go all the way to the Champions League final -- even without injured top-scorer Robin van Persie.

Football: Scholes 'sad' to see old ally Beckham retire

Paul Scholes says his former Manchester United and England team-mate David Beckham's decision to retire is a "sad day". Scholes and Beckham, both 38, came through the youth ranks at United together in the early 1990s and enjoyed huge success as midfield partners before Beckham left for Real Madrid in 2003. Following subsequent spells with Los Angeles Galaxy, AC Milan and, latterly, Paris Saint-Germain, Beckham has announced that he is to retire at the end of the campaign.
