Paul Scholes has been appointed manager of Oldham Athletic, the club have confirmed.

Scholes, 44, who left his punditry role and signed an 18-month contract with Oldham on Monday was one of Mourinho's harshest critics during his tenure at Old Trafford.

With Scholes owning 10% of Salford, he has required clearance from the Football League to take another role - as rules prevent a person filling positions at two clubs at the same time.

Scholes is a part-owner of Salford City and he was briefly caretaker manager of the club in 2015.

"I was a United fan as a young kid but my dad was an Oldham fan so it was a lot easier to go and watch Oldham".

The former Premier League club are languishing in mid-table in League Two, the fourth tier of the English game.

"That is part of the thing that bugged me a little bit".

Sprint takes AT&T to court over 5G Evolution branding
Competing carriers cried foul as 5G E is little more than extension of 4G LTE technology and is in no way true 5G . LTE Advanced and LTE Advanced Pro offer features like 4x4 MIMO and 256QAM, which allow for Gigabit-level speeds.

"There was talk when I finished my career, but it wasn't something I was quite ready to do".

"I wanted to come into this with my full coaching badges and I've got them now". If pundits - I don't think we will get many pundits watching - if we are losing games I am sure people will be popping up.

"The pundits can say what they want, I have never really understood why players and managers take notice of what pundits say anyway".

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

Scholes is the latest player from Alex Ferguson's United sides to move into management, following in the footsteps of ex-colleagues like Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Scholes will be in the dugout for his first game in charge tomorrow night (Tuesday 12th February 2019) at home to Yeovil Town.

There have been reports of interference in team affairs from club owner Abdallah Lemsagam and his brother Mohamed - the club's sporting director - but Scholes is adamant he will not accept that.
