Paul Scholes appointed new manager of Manchester based club

Paul Scholes appointed new manager of Manchester based club

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has been appointed the new manager of English League Two side Oldham Athletic.

According to reports, Scholes will begin work at Boundary Park on Monday with the club set to unveil him at an official press conference on Monday afternoon. There was controversy as to whether Scholes will land the job but an EFL board meeting decided there was not a conflict of interests because of Scholes' 10 percent stake in Salford City who, despite playing in the National League, are fighting for promotion to League Two.

Reports, however, suggest that the only restriction to the 44-year-old taking over as manager of Oldham is that he will not be allowed to sign players from, or sell to, Salford City. Oldham have been in search of a new manager since parting ways with Frankie Bunn back in December.
