🔴 Man United legend Paul Scholes takes charge of Salford City

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has become employed as Salford City’s interim manager in League Two.

Scholes, who co-owns the club with his few Man United, gets the appointment after Graham Alexander was sacked.

“Scholes will be aided in his role as interim head coach by Warren Joyce, who is currently self isolating, while a new permanent manager is sought,” confirmed the Manchester Evening News.

A club statement read: "Salford City Football Club announces that manager Graham Alexander has left the club with immediate effect.

"The club met with Graham this morning and after discussion have agreed to part company. The club would like to thank Graham for his contribution and all his hard work.

"In his first season he guided the team to Wembley, resulting in promotion to League 2 and in his second season he reached the Leasing.com Trophy final. The club would like to wish him all the best and success in the future.

"Paul Scholes will act as the interim head coach while the club looks to secure a new manager. Warren Joyce, currently in isolation, will join Paul once he is able to,” ended the note.
