Scholes is set to take on his first role in management with the League Two side starting tomorrow, say reports
The Manchester United legend, 44, is set to take on his first role in management with the League Two side starting tomorrow, say reports.
Former England midfielder Scholes received clearance from the EFL to take on the role on Friday and will succeed sacked Frankie Bunn.
Oldham have been chasing Scholes for weeks now, but their attempts to land him were met with problems.
Scholes is part-owner of National League side Salford City, who are attempting to win promotion to football's fourth tier this season.
And rule 103.1.3 of the Football League handbook suggested that Oldham's appointment could breach their regulations about duel interest and ownership.
Had Salford been promoted to League Two this season, then Scholes would potentially have faced having to sell his ten per cent stake in the club.
But it is understood assurances have now been given and the EFL board are happy with the prospect of Salford and Oldham being in the same division next season.
On the back of those revelations, Scholes can be announced as Latics boss immediately – and should be named Monday morning.
Oldham – currently under the leadership of Pete Wild – sit 14th in the League Two after beating Crawley 3-0 yesterday.
