Scholes welcome at United - Solskjaer


Paul Scholes would be a welcome addition to Manchester United following his departure from Oldham, interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said.

Scholes left Oldham on Thursday, just 31 days after taking charge, claiming that it had become clear that he would 'not be able to operated' as he intended.

The former United player won his first match in charge of the club he has supported since he was a boy, but he drew three and lost three before stepping down.

Despite Scholes sudden departure, Solskjaer would love the opportunity to welcome him back to United and has invited him for a chat.

"He's probably got his reasons why he has left. I've texted him," Solskjaer told reporters on Friday.

"You have to ask him [what happened]. He is invited here if he wants to come and have a chat about it - I've texted him.

"It didn't work out as he wanted but that's management."
