It is believed the only restriction to the 44-year-old taking over as manager of Oldham is he will not be allowed to sign players from, or sell to, Salford City.

"I couldn't be any happier at the minute", Scholes told Oldham's official website. Nicky Butt is the head of United's academy but has never had a full-time role while David Beckham is launching Major League Soccer franchise Inter Miami C.F. Obviously there's been talk of it when I finished my (playing) career.

Paul Scholes expects Jose Mourinho to take a strong interest in his first foray into management with Oldham - but isn't counting on the Portuguese to watch their matches in person. I have been quite critical.

"I want my team to be aggressive and focused on winning first and foremost", he said.

Kyler Murray Has Officially Made A Decision On The NFL
Murray picking football over baseball is no surprise at all; for MLB, that may be the worst part of it all. There's officially a big-time quarterback available for National Football League teams to consider.

Speaking about the appointment, Oldham owner Abdallah Lemsagam said: "Paul has won everything there is to win in football". 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. United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, preparing his team to face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday, wished his former team-mate luck.

Scholes has also previously acknowledged that, having worked as a pundit and been outspoken in some of his opinions, he is open to criticism if things do not go to plan for him as a boss. It's a challenge for him. "I'm like every other manager I want to try and change that and I hope I can do it".

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.

Scholes's first game in charge will be this weekend at home to Crewe. However, following a meeting of the English Football League, the move has been given the go-ahead.
