Manchester United Legend Paul Scholes Interviews for Manager Job at Oldham

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

Latics, who are now 19th in the League One table, have been in search of a new manager since John Sheridan left in September.

Sheridan left Oldham at the foot of the table but they have risen to 19th under the temporary management of Richie Wellens, their former midfielder, who wants the permanent job.

Scholes, who retired from professional football in May 2013 after a 20-year career with Manchester United, has been a frequent attendee at Boundary Park over the past few seasons and lives locally.

During a glittering playing career Scholes hoisted 11 Premier League titles, three FA Cups, two League Cups, along with a brace of Champions League triumphs.

According to several media reports, the League One outfit is keen to make Scholes their manager, although no official confirmation has come from the club. "I just did not feel this was the right time".

Another former United midfielder, Richie Wellens, is now interim manager and has spoken of his desire to take on the role full time having won all three matches in charge.

The 42-year-old has since been working as a TV pundit, is a co-owner of Salford City, and has coached at Man Utd, although while he may be a high-profile name it's important to remember that he has zero managerial experience.
