After his entertaining career as an outspoken pundit, Paul Scholes is under no illusions about what he is letting himself in for as he takes his first steps into management. ‘I’ve left myself wide open,’ the new Oldham Athletic manager acknowledged with a smile. ‘I’ve been quite critical.’ One Portuguese recipient of a Scholes verbal volley (or seven), may well take a keen interest in goings-on at Boundary Park.Paul Scholes has made his long awaited move into management with Oldham Athletic

‘I think he’ll be watching results,’ the 44-year-old said of former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho. ‘Whether he’ll be at Oldham watching games I’m not too sure.’ But this is not Old Trafford, where he won 20 major trophies. Money is tight at the League Two club and on Friday following a row over payment, the main stand was without hot water after the gas meter was ripped out.Scholes held his first press conference as Latics manager on Monday afternoon

There are other issues. Sources tell of interference in team selection from owner, Moroccan agent Abdallah Lemsagam, with three players understood to have previously been barred from the starting XI. Again, Scholes appeared to be ahead of the game. ‘As the owner, he is going to be interested in his team,’ he said. ‘But he won’t be picking the team, I think we are quite clear on that and I wouldn’t be here if I wasn’t confident on that. Not confident — sure of it.’The new boss was presented with a Latics shirt with his name on it at his unveiling

The reality of the task is not lost on him. ‘It might be the biggest mistake of my life, I don’t know,’ he said. ‘Or it might be the best thing I ever did. There’s an uncertainty there, I don’t doubt that.’  Should Scholes encounter trouble, he will not be short of people to call, including Sir Alex Ferguson. ‘I’m sure the gaffer is on the other end of the phone,’ he said. ‘He’ll want me to do well and if I need any help, I’ll be ringing him.’Scholes will use his Manchester United contacts as he takes his first steps into management

However, if things do not go according to plan, he may wish to switch the phone off. ‘I have left myself open, living in the area, to a bit of stick from Oldham fans which I am sure will happen at some point,’ he said. ‘I’ve got family, mates who come here. My dad was a massive Oldham fan, there are a lot of people to please and I will have to block a few numbers on my phone if we get beat.’Image result for paul scholes sky sports getty images

You would imagine it will not take much to please them. Since becoming founder Premier League members in 1992, Oldham have had a long and miserable slide to the bottom tier. It is a far cry from the glory years under Joe Royle, when Scholes would stand in a packed Chaddy End with his father and when United edged two FA Cup semi-final replays in four years.Scholes met fans and posed for pictures outside Boundary Park ahead of his press conference

‘It was a bit difficult at times because I was an apprentice at United,’ said Scholes. ‘For the semi-final at Maine Road, I was in the Oldham end.’ He can reel off the names of Royle’s side: ‘Ritchie, Bunn, Henry, Milligan, Irwin, Barrett, Warhurst, I could name them all.’ As an Oldham resident, he knows what makes the town tick and said: ‘It was a town for a good while in the 90s and it’d be nice to get that back.’The former England international midfielder has agreed an 18-month contract at the club

A bounce like that enjoyed by former team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at United would not go amiss, starting with Tuesday’s clash with Yeovil. ‘Ole’s just a nice man,’ Scholes said. ‘He’s got a great way about him, players will want to play for him and that’s what I want here.’ Niceties aside, does Scholes have a Fergie- hairdryer in his locker? ‘We’ll have to wait and see, won’t we?’ he said.Image result for paul scholes sky sports getty images

He added: ‘If we are losing I am sure people will be popping up. They can say what they want. I have never understood why players and managers listen to pundits. They are giving an opinion and get paid for doing so. If anyone wants to have a dig at me, I won’t be taking any notice.’

Manchester United and Jadon Sancho ‘agree terms on a five-year contract worth £340, 000 per week’

Published

By

Manchester United have reportedly agreed terms on a five-year deal worth £340,000-a-week with Jadon Sancho.

 

The England international and Borussia Dortmund forward is on the verge of joining United with the two clubs in advanced talks over a deal worth £108million.

 

According to BILD, Sancho has now put pen to paper on personal terms and all that needs to be determined before the deal can go through is the structure of the transfer.

Other reports claimed United would pay £63m upfront and then £27m and £18m over the next two summers.

 

Negotiations are still ongoing but are expected to be finished within the next week, with Dortmund set to make a staggering profit having signed the winger for just £8m from United’s arch-rivals Manchester City in 2017.

 

A fee of £108m for the 20-year-old would see him become the most expensive player bought by an English club, topping the £89m Manchester United paid to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus in 2016.

The deal would also see Sancho become the club’s second-highest paid player behind David de Gea and the third top earner in the Premier League.

 

Sancho registered 17 goals and 17 assists across 32 Bundesliga games last season.

Details of Man Utd’s deal for Jadon Sancho revealed

Published

on

By

Manchester United have entered the race to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho and are willing to offer the player’s club their asking price.

Sancho is also wanted by Liverpool and Chelsea this summer transfer window.

But Man United hold a significant advantage over their rivals after they submitted an opening offer of £89million to Dortmund for their winger last week which was rejected by the Bundesliga giants.

Dortmund are holding out for a £109.3million transfer fee for Sancho.

The German club has already told Red Devils to sign Sancho before August 10 as they want the 20-year-old’s future resolved before the start of their pre-season training camp in Switzerland later this month.

Man United have seen their revenue streams hit hard because of the coronavirus pandemic and will have less money to spend this summer.

According to Bild, Man United want to pay Dortmund €70million upfront for Sancho this summer and later pay another £30million in 2021, and then an extra €20million in 2022.

Man United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is keen to add Sancho to his squad this summer in a bid to bolster the right side of his attack after securing qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League.
