Paul Scholes offered job at Man Utd by Solskjaer after quitting as Oldham boss

PAUL SCHOLES HAS been invited back to Manchester United after quitting Oldham.

Scholes walked out of his job at Boundary Park after just 31 days and seven games citing interference from above in what he was trying to do.

Now his old United team-mate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opened the door at the Carrington Training Ground to keep his eye in.

Solskjaer said: “He's invited here if he wants to come and have a little chat about it,we've texted and it didn't work out, that's just management.”

Scholes worked briefly as a coach at United back in 2014 during Ryan Giggs' four games in charge following the axing of David Moyes.

He also coached the under-23 team when Sir Alex Ferguson was still at the helm having retired from playing in August 2011.

It was during that time that he convinced himself he was good enough to make a return which he did in January 2012.

Meanwhile Solskjaer insists United have trophies in their eyes as they reach the business end of the season.

This was always the traditional time under Sir Alex when Solskjaer was a player that the Red Devils shifted up the gears on their way to glory – and that is what the Norwegian is expecting from this side too.

They have an FA Cup quarter-final away to Wolves tomorrow and a last eight tie in the Champions League.

Solskjaer said: “It’s the not squeaky bum time like the gaffer used to say but it tightens up and April and May at Manchester United is when we narrow the focus and it's now about winning trophies, making use of the squad.

“It’s always been April and May when we make the last step.

United go into the game at Molineux on the back of their first league defeat under Solskjaer, by 2-0 at Arsenal last weekend.

But the boss says that in no way has that halted the momentum built up under himself as he was still very pleased with the performance.

He said: “You're always measured on results but we played a good game against Arsenal.

“We have played so much worse and won games and that's the strange thing when you're a manager you can look behind the result and say that was a good performance but we didn't get what we deserved… it's so strange.

“With the Arsenal one, I’m very disappointed in the result but we can't look at the performance and say we were s**t because we weren't, to be honest and blunt, we weren't, we played well.”
