The teenage son of the former Manchester United star Paul Scholes was found guilty of assault after beating a former schoolmate.
Arron Scholes was accused of "laughing hysterically" while attacking Robert Kember in an unnamed pub in Oldham, in June last year.
The nineteen-year-old was also accused of taking a photo of the face of his alleged victim.
The teenager, a striker for the non-league Royton Town, was escorted to court by his father, a football legend, father and mother Claire, on Monday.
He denied the assault by beating by stating that he was acting in self-defense but was convicted after a trial.
He will be sentenced next week after a report has been prepared to see if it is suitable for community work.
Mr. Kemper, who had been drinking a lot before the accident after watching a World Cup game with friends, said at the hearing: "We had a couple of beers and a mini bottle of vodka and I noticed that Arron was from the other side of the pub and went to say "hello".
"I had a small answer, I didn't think about it, I left and I returned to my friends.
"I knew Arron from school, me and my friends were talking and talking about football, then I played billiards and then went out for a cigarette.
"There were a couple of other people who came out but I don't remember who was there. I had a cigarette facing the door when I started getting punches, I didn't know where it came from or who it was throwing them.
"I was only aware of going out in a daze a few minutes later, I was still uncertain about what had happened, I was very confused about that incident, I only knew I had been hit several times and hadn't hit anyone else.
"I didn't know who did it at the time, but I found out shortly after. Both my eyes were swollen and there was dried blood in my nose and ears, I had bloodshot eyes for a few weeks, swollen swollen cheeks, swollen lips and bruises for a week or so.
"I saw Arron at his eighteenth birthday party, we had been friends at school, we had fallen but we had recovered from that, I am not sure of the events of the night, I only know the wounds I suffered I was in a state of daze and Unconsciousness for the most part, I'm not sure if the wounds or alcohol hit my memory. "
Last week, Scholes Snr left his role as manager of Oldham after only 31 days of complaints for broken promises.
Scholes was named Oldham's boss with a one-and-a-half-year contract on February 11th.
He resigned as director of the club in Salford City, while maintaining his 10% participation, before taking up the job.
Scholes won his first game at the head of the club in his hometown, but later caught three and lost three.
Oldham's fan for life last Thursday claimed he was not allowed to "operate as I wanted".
