Former Manchester United star appointed manager of top English club

Paul Scholes becomes new manager of League 2 side Oldham United

"I'm sure - well, I hope! - they want me to do well here as well".

"I think he will be watching results".

The 44-year-old former midfielder is expected to take charge of proceedings at the Boundary Park on Monday.

Scholes was on Monday named the new Oldham manager, leaving punditry to sign an 18-month contract with the Latics.

Paul Scholes, renowned former pinger of footballs, has officially been announced as the new manager of Oldham Athletic.

Regarded as one of the best midfielders of all time, Scholes is part of an elite group to join the Premier League's 100 club, gaining 11 top-flight titles in the process.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Kyrie Irving's right knee sprain isn't serious and expected to be day-to-day. It's unacceptable for what we did with a team of our caliber".

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

Scholes, who has the UEFA A coaching badge, believes Oldham's squad is good enough to soon be challenging for promotion.

"I have a lot of passion for this town, obviously I live in the area, 15 minutes away, and I know it's been 20 or 30 years since there's been excitement at the club really", Scholes said. I have never understood why players and managers listen to pundits.

"Obviously Zak's come in, he scored his first goal on Saturday and he made a big difference in the game".

"It's fantastic to have Scholesy back in the game because he was a fantastic player to play with, great personality". I've prepared for Yeovil, I've seen them a few times.

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. Further, a stake of 10% or less is regarded as purely for investment purposes. "When I'm not quite sure what to do I'll be looking to them for advice".
