The 31 managers who played at Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson

The 31 managers who played at Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson

Over the last few years the world of football has been waiting to see where Ryan Giggs will begin his managerial career.

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

Paul Scholes was interviewed for the Oldham Athletic manager's job on Wednesday morning, with the club now deciding whether to give the former Manchester United and England midfielder the role.

Now the 4/5 favourite could now be on the verge of leaping into the managerial arena with the club he's supported since a boy. Oldham now lie in 19th position in League One and a takeover of the club remains ongoing.




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.

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 Class of 92 have had a largely rough start to management since hanging up their boots as professional footballers.

Since calling time on a United career comprising 717 appearances and 155 goals, Scholes has worked as a television pundit and briefly coached at Old Trafford in the aftermath of David Moyes' ill-fated reign.
