Oldham chairman cools rumours over Man Utd legend Scholes

Oldham Athletic chairman Simon Corney has played down talk of offering the manager's job to Manchester United legend Paul Scholes.

Surprisingly the 38-year-old midfielder was labelled as a front-runner but Corney has denied any suggestions that the Old Trafford legend would be taking the post.

"If Paul Scholes was to so much as express a desire to come here, it would refresh the whole club and of course I would be interested," Corney said.

"But is it going to happen? No, it isn't and there has been no contact between ourselves and Paul Scholes.

"For one thing, I cannot see him wanting to go from earning £60,000-a-week at Manchester United to £600-a-week at Oldham!"
