Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes is set to be back in football and become Oldham Athletic’s manager.
He is set to be unveiled as the Oldham Athletic manager at a press conference on Monday.
The EFL confirmed on Friday there would be no impediment to Scholes taking the job, despite the former Manchester United and England player owning a 10 per cent stake in Salford City.
It is officially confirmed that a holding of 10% or less in a club is disregarded providing it is held “purely for investment purposes”.
Oldham’s current caretaker manager, Pete Wild yesterday was asked by Sky Sports News if that would be his last game in charge and he answered:
“I think so but, as with all these eight games, I have come in every morning, tried my best and worked hard, and I’ll just plan for tomorrow. I have just got to keep on working like that.”
