SCHOLES: I WILL BE AT LATICS ONE DAY
FORMER England and Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has revealed he turned down an offer to manage Oldham – but expects to eventually end up in the Boundary Park dugout.
The Latics have been searching for a new manager since Lee Johnson left for Barnsley last month.
Former boss Iain Dowie is the odds-on favourite to return after 12 years away from the north-west.
But while coach and TV pundit Scholes insisted the time wasn’t right to make the move, he believes he will fill the Latics’ hot-seat one day.
“It is no secret that Oldham were interested in appointing me as Lee Johnson’s successor at the club, and it was an offer that really tempted me,” he said.
“One day I believe that I will manage Oldham, the club that my dad supports and who are very close to my heart.”
