The two former footballers played together for more than ten years at the English Premier League club.

Former Manchester United and England national team legend Paul Scholes started coaching Oldham Athletic on February 11th of this year.

But he surprisingly left the team yesterday, after having played only seven matches.

Scholes only won one match as Oldham’s coach, drawing three times, and losing another three.

And after leaving the English Football League side, he was invited to return to the Premier League by Manchester United’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“Well, he’s probably got his reasons why he left,” Solskjaer told reporters according to the club’s official website.

“You’ve got to ask him.”

“He’s invited here if he wants to come and have a little chat about it – I’ve texted him,” he added.

In 1993 he got his chance at first-team football until 2011.

After a one year hiatus, he returned to United in 2012 to have the chance to say goodbye to the Premier League and its fans.

As a United player, he scored 155 goals in 718 matches. He also scored 14 goals for the England national team in 66 games.

The Oldham job was his first serious job as a manager.
