Oldham Athletic believe Paul Scholes will be their manager one day

Paul Scholes will one day become manager of Oldham Athletic, according to chairman Simon Corney.

Oldham Athletic chairman Simon Corney believes that Paul Scholes will become their manager at some point in the future.

Scholes is a boyhood Oldham fan, and he was heavily linked with the managerial position when Lee Johnson left the club last week.

It is unlikely that the ex-Manchester United player will replace Johnson, but Corney and director Anthony Gill believe that the role may interest him in the future.

Corney told BBC Radio Manchester: "We speak on a regular basis and Paul occasionally comes down and does training sessions. He's a friend of the club.

"We know what Paul's all about, he's very low key, he doesn't make a big deal about things. He turns up at the games, never turns up at the directors' box, he turns up with his two lads, flat cap down and you wouldn't even know he was there.

"I'd love to have him on board, [but] it's difficult. Again, you have to ask would Oldham be the right club for somebody like Paul? It's not just about us wanting Paul, it's also would it be the right thing for him? I think Anthony's right that one day he will come and manage the club but it's all about timing with him."

Scholes has moved into the media since his retirement in 2013.
