Scholes interviewed for vacant manager’s job at Oldham Athletic


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

Oldham released former boss John Sheridan on September 25 and were reluctant to release a statement but according to reports, Scholes was interviewed on Wednesday.

Ex-Netherlands star Clarence Seedorf was interviewed last month as well.

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.

“They are a really good family club who mean a great deal to a lot of people – myself included. I just did not feel this was the right time.”

At the start of this year, Scholes took youth training sessions at Oldham as part of work towards his UEFA A coaching licence.
