Paul Scholes set to make another sensational comeback

Manchester United's veteran central midfielder Paul Scholes has said he is ready to discuss his national team future with new boss Roy Hodgson, who is set to announce his squad for the Euros. Retired for almost eight years now, Scholes who has already been denied a chance to represent Britain in the London Olympics this year by United boss Ferguson, could find the chance to represent his country of birth in the Euros for possibly the last time too hard to resist. The English Football Hall Of Fame inductee has earned 66 caps for the national team and scored 14 times, his last game being England's Euro 2004 quarter-final loss against Portugal. Roy Hodgson is set to announce his England squad, which travels to Poland and Ukraine, on Wednesday.

Scholes, who seemingly had retired at the end of last season, made a surprising return in January and has since excelled in the midfield role he made his own for two decades. His 4 goals in 20 matches for The Red Devils since coming out of retirement, means he has scored in every Premier League season since 1994-95. Additionally, the control he brings to the centre of the park, has seen him fit seamlessly into a fairly young United setup.

Aston Villa part ways with Alex McLeish

A day after the end of an extremely disappointing season, Aston Villa have sacked manager Alex McLeish. Villa finished a lowly 17th, just two points off the relegation zone and the owner Randy Lerner has decided that the buck stops with the manager, thus relieving McLeish 11 months into his job. The Scotsman was always up against it as the fans were extremely unhappy with the club appointing the then Birmingham City manager. The turmoil spread after Ashley Young and Stewart Downing were sold in the summer. Villa then lost Darren Bent, Richard Dunne and Stiliyan Petrov for extended spells, which contributed to the club’s worst ever home record in a season as they picked up just four victories at Villa Park.

An official statement from the club read: “Aston Villa can confirm that Alex McLeish's contract has been terminated with immediate effect. The club has been disappointed with this season's results, performances and the general message these have sent to our fans. The board wishes to assure supporters that we are conscious in every sense that Villa expects and deserves more and we will strive to deliver this. ”
