Next Oldham manager: Paul Scholes ‘in the frame’ for job

Manchester United hero Paul Scholes could be about to take his first managerial role in football, according to Ladbrokes.

The former midfielder, 42, is priced at 12/1 to be named as John Sheridan's replacement at Oldham Athletic after the club parted ways with the manager on Monday morning.

The boyhood Boundary Park regular reportedly turned down the chance to manage the Latics back in 2015, but the bookies are now giving him an outside chance of finally taking over the League One outfit..

Alex Apati, of Ladbrokes, said: "It's no secret that Scholes has a history with Oldham, and the latest odds tell us his boyhood club could be about to give him his first break in management."
