Paul Scholes: ‘Manchester United cannot afford to lose Paul Pogba’

Paul Scholes says that Manchester United will be losing their “best player” if they allow Paul Pogba to join Real Madrid this summer. Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has warned his former club that they cannot afford to lose Real Madrid target Paul Pogba during the summer transfer window. The France international has publicly flirted with the La Liga giants and Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has done little to play down a move. Several players are expected to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season, with Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia all out of contract. However, Scholes is more concerned about the future of Pogba, who scored two more penalties in Saturday’s 2-1 win over West Ham United to take his goals tally for the season to 16 in...

Arsenal and Spurs are two and three points clear respectively, while Chelsea are five points better off in third place after playing a game more than those around them. Scholes fears that United may miss out on Champions League f...

Scholes relieved to get first win as manager of Oldham

New Oldham manager Paul Scholes was relieved to get his career in the dugout up and running with a win. The former Manchester United midfielder, who admitted he had endured a sleepless night just hours before his Monday appointment, oversaw a 4-1 win over League Two strugglers Yeovil in his first match in charge at Boundary Park. Jose Baxter and Callum Lang scored in the space of a few minutes either side of half-time to give him the perfect start. But it required two goals in the final two minutes from Mohamed Mouche and Christopher Missilou to ease the nerves after Bevis Mugabi had reduced the deficit. “It’s a relief and I may get some sleep tonight,” said Scholes, who lives just a few minutes’ drive from his boyhood club. “After the game, I said ‘Well...

The new Latics boss, who plans to tap into contacts at his old club, handed a f...

Paul Scholes expecting to be scrutinised by Jose Mourinho as he takes on Oldham job

As a pundit the former Manchester United midfielder, who has signed an 18-month contract with Latics, was one of the Portuguese’s most damning critics during his spell at Old Trafford. However, Scholes has now swapped the television studio for the dugout as he seeks to lead Oldham – his boyhood club and close to where he now lives – out of League Two. “I think he will be watching results,” said Scholes when asked about Mourinho. “Whether he will be watching the games I am not too sure. “That is part of the thing that bugged me a little bit. I wanted to get into it (management) anyway but I have left myself wide open. I have bee...
