Paul Scholes Appointed Interim Head Coach Of League Two Club

Paul Scholes didn't experience too much success during his first stint as a manager. The Manchester United legend walked into a difficult situation at Oldham Athletic, ultimately resigning from his post after only 31 days. He won one of his seven games in charge.

He took the decision to resign after he claims he was misled by the club in terms of their finances and the influence he would have as manager.

He has not had another management gig since leaving that job in March of last year, but is now set to step into the breach at a club he is very familiar with.

Paul Scholes has been appointed as interim head coach of League Two side Salford City, who have decided to part ways with manager Graham Alexander. The club announced the move on their website this afternoon.

Of course, Scholes will be very familiar with Salford City. He is a part owner of the club, having a share alongside Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, and David Beckham.

The sacking of Graham Alexander has come as somewhat of a surprise, with the former Burnley player leading them into the Football League during his three years in charge. They have also experienced a decent start to the season, sitting in fifth placed in League Two after taking nine points from their opening five games.

Salford will hope that having a name such as Scholes in the dressing room everyday will give the players a big boost, although it seems as though it will only be on a temporary basis.

There are a couple of Irish internationals at the club, with Darron Gibson and Richie Towell having been at Moor Lane since last season.
