Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 'Scholes is invited here if he wants to come & have a little chat'
- Scholes resigned from Oldham Athletic.
- He was 'led to believe' the conditions would be different.
- Their owner denied poking his nose in the team selection.
- Ole would always welcome the old friend for a chat; doesn't know if Scholes will pursue a coaching career.
Paul Scholes only lasted 31 days in management registering one victory in seven games in charge of Oldham United. While some are mocking Scholes for what didn't turn out to be a cracker of a spell, the real reason for resignation might be the interference from the club's owner. Any way it is, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would meet his former teammate to talk it through.
When asked if he was surprised by Scholes's decision, Ole said at his press conference: ''You've got to ask him (if he'll go into management again). He's invited here if he wants to come and have a little chat about it. I've texted with him, of course. It didn't work out as he wanted. That's just management,''
Paul only manager 6 points from his 7 games in charge as some Oldham fans were quite pleased with the progress in terms of performances. Quite unfortunately for them, they twice blew some sure three points because of a goal in the injury time of the second half. Likewise, they lost to Morecambe 2-1 because of a last-minute goal.
Oldham Athletic owner insists on being clean in all this story as he did no wrong to incur Scholes's wrath while the former United star was in charge.
