Paul Scholes finally offered a coaching role with surprising minnows

Paul Scholes has been offered a coaching job, but it’s not the high profile one that people might have expected.

In fact, according to the Sun, it is lowly Wigan which have made an approach to the former Manchester United star.

The connection, according to the Sun, is through Warren Joyce, who left Man United’s reserves last week to take the Wigan job.

An old friend of Scholes’, Joyce is set to offer his ginger friend a role at the DW Stadium.

There have been rumours that the Oldham born former midfielder would replace Joyce at United’s reserves, but as Scholes would prefer a part time role the job with Wigan would suit him better. Joyce wants him to give the forwards at the DW stadium specialist advice, and it does seem like this would suit Scholes’ desires better than a full time role coaching a reserve team.

Many have lamented the fact that Scholes has only done TV work since his retirement, meaning his experience and knowledge have been lost to the game until now.
