Reports Claim Paul Scholes Could Be Set For First Job In Management

Reports Claim Paul Scholes Could Be Set For First Job In Management

The League One side have so far refused to comment on whether or not talks have been held with the ex-star, but according to BBC Radio, Scholes has been contacted and spoken to by officials at the club.

Former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Scholes has been interviewed for the vacant manager's job at League One Oldham Athletic.

When retiring for good in May 2013, Scholes took coaching positions when David Moyes managed the club and briefly when Ryan Giggs was interim manager for four games at the close of the 2013-14 campaign, after the former was sacked.

Scholes, an 11-time Premier League champion, was previously offered the chance to become manager at his boyhood club when Lee Johnson left for Barnsley in 2015.

It would be a hard situation for a managerial debut with Oldham sitting at 19th in League One, and also considering that current caretaker manager, also an ex-United player in Richie Wellens, has done a solid job thus far. "I just did not feel this was the right time".

Sky Sports News understands 42-year-old Scholes and current caretaker manager Richie Wellens are the leading candidates for the Sky Bet League One job.

Oldham parted company with John Sheridan at the end of September.

Scholes has been linked with the Latics before, only for nothing to materialise, while he worked with the club's youth team in order to gain his UEFA A Licence.
