Paul Scholes interviewed for vacant Oldham post

Paul Scholes interviewed for vacant Oldham post

As Paul Scholes is linked with the vacant manager's position at Oldham, we look at the managerial careers of the players who played under Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

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.

In a column for the Independent newspaper at the time, Scholes wrote: "One day I believe that I will manage Oldham, the club that my dad supports and who are very close to my heart".

The ex-England global, who has worked as a television pundit since retiring from his playing career in 2013, is a boyhood Oldham fan.

Oldham are now under the stewardship of interim boss Richie Wellens, who has been credited with showing interest in taking charge of the club on a permanent basis.

Scholes is a life-long Oldham fan and a regular visitor to Boundary Park but has no managerial experience apart from a brief stint as part of Ryan Giggs' backroom staff following David Moyes' dismissal as Manchester United manager.

The Latics have since interviewed Clarence Seedorf and Steven Pressley for the vacant role in recent weeks, but could Scholes be their man?

Most of Scholes's time at present is taken up as a media pundit for BT Sport and as co-owner of non-league Salford City.
