Boss' job is too soon for fan Scholes
Paul Scholes has revealed he does intend to manage Oldham in the future but feels the timing is wrong for him to assume the current vacancy at SportsDirect.com Park.
The former England and Manchester United midfielder was tipped to take on his first managerial post with his boyhood club after Lee Johnson left Latics to move to Sky Bet League One rivals Barnsley last week.
Scholes said: "It was an offer that really tempted me. Even as I watched them in the Port Vale game on Tuesday, having made my decision not to take the job, there was part of me that wished I was in the dug-out.
"I will be a manager one day. I have come to see that over the last eight months, although I know that I first said that I did not see my future in coaching.
"And one day I believe that I will manage Oldham, the club that my dad supports and who are very close to my heart."
