Paul Scholes to be confirmed as Oldham Athletic manager on Monday

"It wasn't something I was quite ready to do and there's obviously been three or four times over the last six years where it could have happened and I've not been quite ready".

"It's been 20-30 years since there has been excitement at the club".

Oldham sacked Frankie Bunn in December and academy coach Pete Wild had been in caretaker charge prior to Scholes' appointment.

However, owner Abdallah Lemsagam moved to appoint a full time manager and has turned to Oldham-born Scholes on a full time basis until 2020.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is close to landing first managerial job after being cleared by the English Football league board.

'He is a man who will bring a lot of footballing knowledge and his hunger to succeed in management will be there for everyone to see.




Scholes has now taken charge at his boyhood club in League Two and despite admitting he has left himself "wide open" to scrutiny, is not daunted by what might be said about him. "But now I feel, I hope, the time is right to give it a go and hopefully we can be successful together".

Scholes' first match in charge will see his new side host Yeovil Town on February 12 as they look to bridge the nine-point gap to thos now in the League Two play-off places.

"It is great that Paul is back in football and everyone at the club wishes him all the best in his new venture into football management".

Former England worldwide Scholes, who spent his whole playing career at Premier League giants Manchester United, was a boyhood Oldham fan.

His brother Phil Neville is the England women's team manager, having previously worked as a coach at Valencia.

Scholes has plenty of former colleagues and team-mates for support and advice and revealed he will try to use his links with Manchester United to his advantage but he is keen to find his own way in management.
