But Scholes last just 31 days this season in charge of Oldham Athletic, while Neville flopped with Valencia.

In an interview with RT Sport, Mourinho stated: "But the experience to be there, we have even in England, former top players, amazing in front of the screen, they go to football clubs, and after two months, goodbye, let's go home because this is not right for us.

<![CDATA[FA charge Man Utd legend Scholes over bets]]> <p>The FA have charged Manchester United legend Paul Scholes with misconduct.</p><p>The former Oldham Athletic has been hit with the charges after placing 140 bets during a four-year period, reports the <a href="https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/breaking-paul-scholes-charged-breaching-14360116">Mirror</a>.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/fa-charge-man-utd-legend-scholes-over-bets-4277195?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BOldham%2BAthletic'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> The FA have charged Manchester United legend Paul Scholes with misconduct.

The former Oldham Athletic has been hit with the charges after placing 140 bets during a four-year period, reports the Mirror.

Scholes, 44, was co-owner of Salford City during the time between August 2015 and January 2019 when the bets were placed and FA rules prevent anyone working within the game from gambling on football.

Manchester United legend Scholes has become the latest high profile star to fall foul of FA rules on gambling on football.

It is believed that Scholes' offence is more likely to result in a fine and warning rather than lengthy suspension.

The difference is that while Scholes' bets would potentially break the rules, they are believed to have been placed purely for personal enjoyment and without using insider knowledge.

The FA statement read: Paul Scholes has been charged with misconduct in relation to the FA's betting rules.

It is alleged he placed 140 bets on football matches, contrary to FA Rule E8, between 17 August 2015 and 12 January 2019. He has until 26 April 2019 to respond to the charge."

Scholes lasted just 31 days as manager with the Latics.

He told the Daily Mail: "I had heard loads of stories about interference and stuff. The first three weeks there was little bits. Not so much "leave him out, he can't play, don't play him, play the player I said", there was nothing like that in the first three weeks.

"There were subtle hints, yeah of course, but I'm not stupid enough to not realise what they are trying to do. In the last week there was a couple of issues with a couple of players. Experienced pros that I felt didn't deserve to be treated the way the club wanted to treat them.

"I didn't need the hassle of that. I really like the players, really respected them and would have done anything for them. But once I get told 'don't play him', that's when it is time for me to go...

"That only happened once, but that was the end of it. There were subtle hints along the way, but that was the end of it."

Manchester United hero Scholes stunned League Two Oldham by quitting as boss earlier this month after just 31 days.

The Latics now have Pete Wild back in caretaker charge until the end of the season ahead of Saturday's home game with Grimsby.

But the Mirror says Oldham are considering a summer move for Port Vale's former Macclesfield boss Askey.

Askey, 54, has impressed at League Two strugglers Vale after taking charge in February on a contract until the end of the season.

Vale have lost just once in five games to boost their hopes of beating the drop.

United legend Scholes lasted just 31 days at Boundary Park before quitting.

The former midfielder was a big critic of Van Gaal during his time at Old Trafford and the Dutchman has noted what occurred at Oldham.

"Paul Scholes was a manager too, yes?" he told BBC Sport. "Fantastic, eh. Fantastic."

Van Gaal added: "The media likes me because I give honest answers. How many people in football give honest answers? I don't lie. Always the truth. OK, maybe my truth. But it is the truth."

Iversen, who is contracted to City until 2022, is currently on loan at Oldham Athletic and says he wants to make another step up from playing under-23s football with City next season.

Leicester and my agent talk together, but I don't have much focus on it right now," he told bold.dk.

Right now I'm concentrating on the Oldham and under-21 national team, which is the most important to me, and then we have to see what happens when I come back this summer.

I just want to play more football. Maybe I would like to take a step up, but I must also show that I am ready for it.

I hope for a loan, but I don't know what Leicester has planned. We will discuss it when we get a little closer."

Oldham have appointed former caretaker manager Wild as head coach for the rest of the season as they move on from Paul Scholes.

Scholes quit the League Two club last week just 31 days into an 18-month contract.

The Manchester United great had replaced Wild after the ex-academy coach had overseen four wins - including an FA Cup victory over Premier League Fulham - having replaced previous manager Frankie Bunn on a temporary basis.

Rumours of interference from board level have dogged the League Two club during Lemsagam's tenure but he rejected claims that was what forced Scholes to leave.

"I was away for 21 days, how could I interfere with his job?" he told Sky Sports News.

"It is not true. I never spoke to him about who was going to play and who was not going to play.

"As a chairman or owner I ask who is going to play, which is normal in football.

"The only time I talked with him was about one player when I asked him if he wanted to keep a player and he said he was happy for me to let him go.

"I don't speak to any players. If I speak to anyone it is the manager."

The Mirror says Scholes walked out on Oldham after claiming that 12 of his players had been promised new contracts behind his back.

The former Manchester United star had become frustrated with life at the League Two club under owner Abdallah Lemsagam.

When the 44-year-old took over last month, he insisted that he would be in charge of all team matters. But he blew a fuse when he learned that 12 of the 20 players who were out of contract this summer had been offered new deals.

Scholes wanted to make the final decisions on who stayed and who went.

The fact that a dozen of his League Two squad had already been informed they would be there next season, without his input, led him to telling Lemsagam that his short stay at the club he supported as a boy was over.
