Former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Scholes has been appointed as manager of Oldham Athletic, the club announced on Monday.

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.

Sky Sports further reports that the only restriction to the 44-year-old is he will not be allowed to sign players from, or sell to, Salford City.

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.
