London (AFP) – Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has been interviewed for the vacant manager’s job at English third-tier club Oldham Athletic, British media reported on Wednesday.

The 42-year-old is a life-long Oldham supporter, but has never held a full-time coaching job.

The northwest club declined to comment on the reports they had spoken to the former England midfielder about the job.

Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes revealed how the signings of Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic left the dressing room 'concerned'.

"To say the dressing room at United was concerned about the suitability of Patrice Evra and Nemanja Vidic when they arrived would be an understatement", he said.

“Time for Cleverley to kick on,” says Scholes

Red Rants at related • 0 views

Paul Scholes has claimed that it's time Tom Cleverley "kicked on" his Manchester United career, given the 24-year-old has so far "done okay" since returning to Old Trafford after loan spells at Wigan and Watford.

Scholesy's statement echoes the thought of the large majority of Reds, who have grown frustrated at Cleverley's inability to control game and failure to build on the promising signs he had shown when first arriving on the scene a couple of years ago, after graduating from the youth ranks.

Moyes: I wanted Meulensteen and Scholes

With Rene Meulensteen replacing Guus Hiddink as manager of Anzhi and Paul Scholes wanting some time out of the game to spend with his family, David Moyes has lost two people he had hoped to be in his coaching staff.

Still, as well as members of the coaching team from Everton, Moyes has appointed Ryan Giggs and Phil Neville, who familiarity with United should give him a real advantage.

Guard it with your life lads!

In other "footballer's cars" news, Paul Scholes had his car stolen on Monday morning after leaving it; doors open, keys in the ignition and engine running, to defrost on his driveway.

Scholes nipped back inside his home in Oldham, perhaps to fetch a couple of Hobnobs for the drive into work, while he left the ice melting on the windscreen of his Chevrolet Captiva estate which the papers are keen to let you know costs around £30,000 new.

Tale of two halves

After that annoyingly inconvenient international break where I was forced to watch the 'promising young team that will be ready for the next qualifying round' of Wales get trashed 6-1 by Serbia, the Premier League got back in action. RVP and Kagawa both suffered knocks on international duty, so didn't start, joined by Valencia, who'd travelled far for Ecuador, but Chicharito, also a globe-trotter, did begin upfront with Welbeck.

Squad Appraisal: The United midfield does not need Dembele

Three points! Just about…

Utd got their points campaign off-and-stumbling at Home against Fulham yesterday afternoon. While the three points were taken, there were two very different aspects to the victory which, while boasting an array of attacking talent, also featured a defence as nervous as a man who's just given the extremely valuable family teaset to Rob Green.

Utd undone by Fellaini

Utd kicked off the new season against Everton last night with a 1-0 loss and a disappointing away performance. We entered the game with a good record, 8 wins out of the last 12 against Everton, but that mattered little as both sides got their campaigns up and running. Well Everton did anyway.

The ‘Makelele role’ is still important

Arsenal Insider at related • 1 view

On the same day that Arsenal's main defensive midfielder was confirmed as a Barcelona player, Everton overran Manchester United in a very impressive and fully deserved 1-0 win at Goodison Park.

The link here? United had no midfield. Sky called it a 4-3-3 in the pre-match buildup, but it looked more like a 4-2-3-1 with Rooney, Nani and Kagawa swapping positions behind Welbeck and ahead of Scholes and Cleverley; one is an ageing playmaker, the other a young playmaker who missed the whole of last season through injury.

How much for 100+ goals?

Arsenal Insider at related • 1 view

It occurred to me the other day that Robin van Persie must be one of the best pieces of business Arsene Wenger ever made for Arsenal, just on goals alone. When I thought about it further, I wondered where he would rank among the top strikers over the last 20 years or so, in terms of the cost of each goal scored; there can't be many strikers who score 100 goals or more for a club that come cheap.

Carrick Enjoys Hearing Amazing Fans Sing His Song

"Oh, oh, oh, it's Carrick, you know, it's hard to believe it's not Scholes" is the song that was first penned years ago for Michael Carrick. The fact that a lot of fans (rightly) didn't see him on a level with Scholes probably contributed to it not really taking off.

However, this afternoon, in our 2-0 win over QPR, our travelling fans sung the song on repeat in the second half and after leaving the ground.
