Paul Scholes appointed interim Salford manager as Ammies sack Graham Alexander

Paul Scholes has been put in temporary charge of Salford City following the sacking of Graham Alexander.

Former Manchester United midfielder Scholes, who co-owns the club with fellow former Reds Gary and Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and David Beckham, takes charge with immediate effect.

It is the second time Scholes has entered management, following his ill-fated 31-day tenure in charge of Oldham Athletic last year.

Salford City announced the managerial change in a statement which 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."

Scholes enjoyed a hugely successful playing career at United, racking up 11 Premier League titles, two Champions Leagues, three FA Cups and two League Cups.
