- Paul Scholes played for Manchester United all through his club career
- He married Claire Froggatt in 1999 after dating her for six years
- His wife has moved out of their home after 21 years of living together
Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is reportedly left devastated as, Claire, his wife has moved out of their home after 21 years of being together.
SunSport reported that the wife of the ex-England hero now lives about 20 minutes away from their home and that she no longer wears her ring.
It was gathered that the pair had met at age 18 inside the player’s local pub before they walked down the aisle six years later.
A source said the pair, both 45, are “devastated”. They added: “You have to feel for them as they both value family above everything else.
“They’ve been together forever and nobody saw this coming.”
He cited missing Claire too much as the reason he retired from Three Lions duty in 2004, aged just 29.
Scholes, believed to have a £27million fortune, often shared pictures of him and Claire, but the last one on his Instagram page was in February.
The former player earlier revealed that the Premier League club Manchester United almost signed former Barcelona attacker Ronaldinho.
The 2008 Champions League winner said the Red Devils stars were already looking forward to playing with the talented Brazilian but ended up becoming his opponent weeks later.
According to The Mirror, United had been given the go-ahead to land the player only for him to change his mind and join the Catalans at the last minute.
Legit.ng earlier reported that former Man United striker Carlos Tevez is planning to get Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to play for the same team in a star-studded testimonial match.
Tevez played alongside Ronaldo for two years at Man United and played together with Messi for the Argentine national team.
The 36-year-old who recently signed a six-month extension with Boca Juniors, is planning a grand testimonial after he retires from football, as he wants Ronaldo and Messi to be part of it.
