Paul Scholes leaves Oldham coaching role after just one month

United suffered their first Premier League defeat under Solskjaer at Arsenal last weekend and will look to recover when they visit Wolverhampton Wanderers in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Saturday

Scholes took over from the sacked Frankie Bunn at Oldham after being cleared by the English Football League which decided that his 10 percent stake in fifth-tier Salford City would not represent a conflict of interest.

Scholes' resignation will be seen as a massive blow to the club and owner Abdallah Lemsagam, who, Revolution News understands, was prepared to back the former England global, despite only claiming one win in his first and only seven games in charge.

Paul Scholes has quit Oldham after one win in seven matches at the League Two club.

"Were you (surprised)?" caretaker United boss Solskjaer said with a smile. "He's invited here if he wants to come and have a little chat about it", Solskjær said. "I've texted with him, of course".

Romelu Lukaku will have to have a foot issue assessed, but there looks to be improvements on the injury front ahead of the trip to Molineux.

"[Romelu] Lukaku had a sore foot this week - he's being assessed, so hopefully he'll get through today". France forward Anthony Martial, who made his comeback from a groin injury as a substitute at Arsenal, is also in contention to start. "Phil Jones is back (from illness)". There've been so many players out. "Anthony has been training well this week".

"I believe he's got the chance to have a great future".

"We've been on a good run and while it's not "squeaky bum time" like the gaffer used to say, it tightens up".

He was part of the travelling United squad for last week's memorable Champions League comeback victory over Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc des Princes, one of eight academy graduates to make the trip to Paris.
