Manchester United Legend Paul Scholes Doesn't Want Oldham Job

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

Scholes turned down the chance to become Oldham manager in 2015 in the belief the timing was not right but chairman, Simon Corney, has claimed publicly in the past that he believes the 42-year-old will manage the club "one day".

It was reported in some corners on Wednesday that Scholes has had a meeting with Oldham regarding becoming their new manager.

Wellens, who retired as a player last season, has stated that he would like to be given the job on a full-time basis after leading the club out of the relegation zone.

An eclectic mix of managers have been linked with the struggling Latics, including Clarence Seedorf, Billy Davies, Darren Ferguson, Alan Stubbs, and Pablo Correa, but Oldham could now opt to go down the rookie route with Schloes.

Scholes spent 20 years in the first team at United, making 718 appearances between 1993 and 2013.

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.

The ex-England star, who is a life-long Oldham supporter, has no managerial experience in the EFL but has coached at United since retiring.
