Paul Scholes has been named manager of League Two club Oldham Athletic.

The former Manchester United and England midfielder, 44, has taken his first managerial role, signing a one-and-a-half-year contract with the team he supported as a boy.

He was cleared by the English Football League to take the role, despite holding a 10% stake in Salford City.

The National League side have confirmed he has resigned as a director, but will retain his shareholding.

“Although Paul was never operational in Salford City he will resign as a director of the football club, allowing him to focus completely on his new role at Oldham,” Salford said in a statement.

“From the start we have always said that each of the ‘Class of 92’ would offer different levels of commitment dependant on their individual roles.”
