Paul Scholes in trouble with the FA

Manchester United icon, Sky Sports pundit, and former Oldham manager Paul Scholes is in trouble.

Scholes is accused of placing 140 football bets in breach of FA policy.

The Guardian outline the claim against Scholes:

The former Manchester United and England midfielder is alleged to have placed 140 bets on football matches over a four-year period ending in January this year, during which time he was a co-owner of Salford City, presently in the National League.

The broadsheet report that Scholes, who is expected to plead guilty, will likely be fined rather than suspended.

Scholes’ bets didn’t relate to Salford City, nor Oldham Athletic.

Man United’s Nicky Butt in trouble with police

It’s also been a bad week for Man United’s Nicky Butt.

The Daily Mail have confirmed that Butt has been questioned by police:

Manchester United head of academy Nicky Butt has been bailed until May 16 after he was arrested on suspicion of assault on Tuesday.

Sportsmail understands the 44–year-old was held by police at 2pm on Tuesday following reports that a woman had been assaulted.
