Paul Scholes, a former midfielder from Manchester United and the England national team, came under the lens of the British Football Association (FA) for making 140 bets on football matches between August 2015 and January 2019, when he was co-owner of Salford City, fifth category club, violating Article 8 of the FA Code of Conduct, which prohibits cardholders and team owners from betting on sporting events.
