Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is eyeing Paul Dickov's job at Oldham Athletic.

Scholes, who made his 705th appearance for the Reds against Stoke last Saturday, responded to a fan’s question asking: “Would you ever manage Oldham Athletic.”

The Saddleworth-based star replied: “It’s quite difficult to say. I don't know what will happen when I stop playing and Oldham have a manager.

“But I love Oldham and it’s the first result I look out for every week. I take my lad to watch them whenever I can.”
