Paul Scholes is all set for his first managerial role with Oldham Athletic holding discussions with the League Two side.
The 42-year old will replace interim manager Pete Wild and will become the first permanent appointment since Franke Bunn, who left the club after Christmas.
Scholes, who won 11 league titles with United, was their reserve-team coach under Sir Alex Ferguson and continued to coach at the club when David Moyes took charge. He is also part-owner of Salford City with fellow members of United’s celebrated Class of ’92 and had a brief spell as joint-caretaker manager of the non-league club in 2015.
His nephew, Ryan Scholes-Beard is currently on the books of Oldham’s academy.
Oldham is currently placed 12th in England’s fourth tier league table.
