Man Utd legend Scholes: Oldham talks went well, but...

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes admits he's missed out on the Oldham Athletic job.

The boyhood Latics fan was interviewed for the position but missed out to caretaker boss Richie Wellens after he masterminded four wins from four matches.

Scholes said: "I had a good chat with Mark (Moisley), the chief executive, and Simon Corney the owner. Talks went very well.

"I'm sure they interviewed quite a few people. It was something I was very interested in but Rick Wellens had done so well, they couldn't ignore that.

"He's brought a really good style of football, something Oldham fans haven't been used to for quite a while. I lost out but hopefully Rick will take them on and he can be successful."
