Oldham boss Scholes happy to seek help from Manchester United

Oldham boss Scholes happy to seek help from Manchester United

A complication was Scholes' involvement in non-league Salford City, where he is a co-owner along with fellow former United stars David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Phil Neville and Gary Neville.

Scholes, upon his unveiling at Oldham on Monday, was inevitably asked how he'd react to any potential future comments from pundits including Mourinho, who yesterday revealed he'd be returning to football in a new role.

"There was talk when I finished my career, but it wasn't something I was quite ready to do".

"If anyone wants to have a dig at me, I won't be taking any notice".

Scholes has also previously acknowledged that, having worked as a pundit and been outspoken in some of his opinions, he is open to criticism if things do not go to plan for him as a boss.

"Paul has won everything there is to win in football", Oldham owner Abdallah Lemsagam said in a statement. He made a big difference in the game so I was really pleased with him as a young player.

Paul Scholes expects Jose Mourinho to take a strong interest in his first foray into management with Oldham - but isn't counting on the Portuguese to watch their matches in person.

"It's no secret how much he has wanted this job in the past and how much he loves this club, so I'm very happy to bring him into our family at Oldham Athletic".

Scholes, who owns a stake in non-league Salford, will step down from his role as director of the National League club, who could be in competition with Oldham next season if they win promotion from the fifth tier.

"It's fantastic to have Scholesy back in the game because he was a fantastic player to play with, great personality". However, following a meeting of the English Football League, the move has been given the go-ahead.

Scholes takes charge of Oldham for the first time tonight when they host struggling Yeovil, a side that have lost their last four games on the spin.
