Paul Scholes to play alongside Deco in Indian futsal league

¬†Former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Scholes has signed a three-year deal to play in India’s new futsal league which starts next month.

The inaugural edition of Premier Futsal, an indoor variant of football where players use a smaller and less bouncier ball than in the traditional game, will run from July 15-26.

“Futsal is a fascinating format that has played a pivotal role in developing the skills of some of the greatest football players,” said Scholes.
