Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has been confirmed as the new manager of Oldham Athletic.
The ex-England international has been appointed as the boss of the club he grew up supporting on a one-and-a-half-year contract.
Scholes, aged 42, posed for a photo with his new assistant manager Mick Priest and Latics owners Abdallah Lemsagam.
The new manager’s first game in charge will be Tuesday’s clash with Yeovil Town at Boundary Park.
Scholes was raised in nearby Langley and went to school around three miles from Boundary Park.
