The former Manchester United and England midfielder has agreed to take his make his managerial bow at the League Two club.

Oldham is based about 16 kilometres northeast of Manchester and played in the first two Premier League seasons before being relegated in 1994.

But the governing body ruled Scholes' background interest at Salford - also part-owned by former Manchester United team-mates David Beckham, Nicky Butt plus Gary and Phil Neville - would not be an issue.

The 44-year-old will bring former Oldham coach Mick Priest back to Boundary Park as his assistant. "When I'm not quite sure what to do I'll be looking to them for advice". "I know it's not going to happen every week, but I go into every game expecting to win".

"I want my team to be aggressive and focused on winning first and foremost", he said.

"Watch the pundits because he's been asking for it", joked the Norwegian, referring to Scholes's outspoken comments as a TV critic. He made a big difference in the game so I was really pleased with him as a young player.

There have been reports of interference in team affairs from club owner Abdallah Lemsagam and his brother Mohamed - the club's sporting director - but Scholes is adamant he will not accept that.

After spending his entire career playing for United, and retiring for a second time from playing in 2013, Scholes has spent most of his time as a television commentator and as a part-owner of fifth-tier club Salford.

'He is a man who will bring a lot of footballing knowledge and his hunger to succeed in management will be there for everyone to see. "But now I feel, I hope, the time is right to give it a go and hopefully we can be successful together".

Scholes takes charge of Oldham for the first time tonight when they host struggling Yeovil, a side that have lost their last four games on the spin.
