Manchester United legend Paul Scholes has refused to rule out a future role in management, according to the Daily Mail.

The Old Trafford midfielder would not be drawn on speculation he could one day take the reins at his favourite club, Oldham Athletic.

The former-England star has supported the club since he was a boy growing up in north Manchester, and reportedly almost decided to play for them before retiring in 2011.

Scholes returned to Manchester United in January 2012, but the 37-year-old responded positively when asked about one day managing Oldham.

When asked by a fan 'would you ever manage Oldham Athletic?', Scholes said: "It's quite difficult to say. I don't know what will happen when I stop playing and Oldham have a manager.

"But I love Oldham and it's the first result I look out for every week. I take my lad to watch them whenever I can."

The Manchester United midfielder picks Oldham forward Frankie Bunn as his favourite ever player, and Scholes selected another ex-Latic, Stuart Balmer, to play in defence in his all-time favourite XI.

During his brief retirement, Scholes spent time working with the Manchester United youth team, and another ex-Old Trafford midfielder has recently started doing the same.

Former-United and England midfielder Nicky Butt has recently rejoined United to help with coaching the club's reserve team.
