Paul Scholes interviewed for Oldham managerial vacancy

Paul Scholes interviewed for Oldham managerial vacancy

Scholes met officials from the League One side on Wednesday morning to discuss the possibility of replacing John Sheridan, who was sacked last month.

Paul Scholes has held talks with Oldham Athletic over the vacant manager's job at Boundary Park.

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. Wellens has led Latics to three straight victories since taking the helm, following impressive victories at home to high flyers Peterborough United and away at Portsmouth.

Oldham parted company with former manager John Sheridan on September 25 following a poor start to the campaign and have since interviewed Clarence Seedorf and Steven Pressley for the vacant role in recent weeks.

Oldham are 19th in League One and next play Blackburn on Saturday.

A combination of the pair can not be ruled out, although Wellens is keen to carry on the work he feels he has already started. Sources say an announcement is likely after next Tuesday's trip to Bradford City.

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. The club will decide whether to appoint him or Scholes in the next couple of days. Rules state that a person may not have an association with two clubs, although permission can be sought.
