Scholes Knows Jose Mourinho Will Be Watching Him Closely

The former Man United player is expected to be unveiled as the new Oldham manager on Monday

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has been appointed manager of Oldham Athletic.

The law guiding the league says anyone with conflict of interest will not be allowed to take any role, and since the former midfielder keeps ten percent of shares at Salford, it became hard.

The 44-year-old has, outside of a brief spell working under Ryan Giggs in 2014 during the Welshman's spell as caretaker manager at Old Trafford, focused on punditry work since hanging up his boots.

Salford City confirmed in a statement on Monday that Scholes would resign as a director at the club but will retain his 10 percent shareholding. "Whether he will be watching the games I am not too sure", Scholes is quoted as saying by Sky Sports. Salford, expectedly, will join League Two (where Oldham plays) next season and there were initial fears of conflict of interests.

He said: "If I go into coaching or management and results are not good, I have left myself open to a bit of stick but I am big enough to take it".

"I've left myself wide open because I have been quite critical".

Though UNC (19-4, 9-1) struggled at home to get past Miami 88-85 in overtime, White was unflappable from long range. But since then, Duke has only hit 10 or more 3-pointers in four other games prior to Saturday at Virginia.

"I don't think we will get many pundits watching - (although) if we are losing games I am sure people will be popping up - can say what they want".

"There's obviously been three or four times over the last six years where [managing Oldham] could have happened and I've not been quite ready, " Scholes said.

"They can say what they want. The only person I answer to is the owner".

Scholes has plenty of former colleagues and friends for support and advice and while he may tap into contacts at Manchester United (friend Nicky Butt is head of the academy there) he is keen to find his own way in management.

Speaking about the appointment, Lemsagam said: "Paul has won everything there is to win in football".

His first game in charge will be Yeovil at home next Tuesday after Wild signed off with a 3-0 win at Crawley Town on Saturday.
