Manchester United's Legend Paul Scholes Appointed Oldham Athletic Manager

The 44-year-old had been reported as the new manager of the club over the weekend but has now been confirmed.

Reports also revealed that his chances of been appointed the manager of the club was threatened by his affiliation with another lower league side Salford City.

Scholes has always been linked with the Oldham job and emerged as the frontrunner for the post after the December sacking of Frankie Bunn.

The former England midfielder will bring in the former Latics coach Mick Priest as his assistant with his first match in charge Tuesday evening's league encounter with Yeovil.

"Paul has won everything there is to win in football", Oldham owner Abdallah Lemsagam said in a statement. However, following a meeting of the English Football League, the move has been given the go-ahead.

Oldham, 14th in League Two, were made to wait before confirming the appointment due to Scholes' involvement as part-owner of National League club Salford.

Scholes, a member of Manchester United's famed "Class of '92" alongside David Beckham and Ryan Giggs, said he wanted to entertain Oldham's fans.

After retiring, he joined forces again with ex-team mates Nicky Butt, Gary and Phil Neville and business man Peter Lim to buy Salford City Football Club and it was here he got his first experience of management when he became joint caretaker boss with Phil Neville, in 2015.
