Scholes interviewed for manager’s job at Oldham
Paul Scholes has been interviewed for the managerial vacancy at Oldham.
The former Manchester United and England midfielder is a lifelong Oldham supporter.
The League One club declined to comment on reports linking Scholes with the vacancy created when John Sheridan was sacked last month.
But it’s understood the 42-yearold, who has worked as a television pundit since retiring from his playing career in 2013, has met the Athletic hierarchy to discuss the manager’s role.
Richie Wellens is the caretaker boss and is also a candidate for the full-time role.
Former Real Madrid and AC Milan midfielder Clarence Seedorf also held talks with club chairman Simon Corney last month but reports later claimed that was only as a fact-finding exercise with the Dutch legend keen to take over a club either in the Premier League or Championship.
Oldham are 19th in League One and next play Blackburn on Saturday.
Lifelong Latic: Paul Scholes.
