Paul Scholes in frame for Salford City vacancy

Paul Scholes has been installed as a contender for the Salford City job following the departure of joint-managers Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley who have today (Tuesday) left the club.

The duo parted ways with the National League North champions by mutual consent, just two weeks after leading Salford up to the National League for the first time in the club's history.

During their time in charge Johnson and Morley won three promotions in four seasons, but have now opted to end the relationship due to “irreconcilable differences around personal terms relating to contract length and performance related matters.”

Salford are co-owned by Peter Lim and former Man Utd stars Gary and Phil Neville, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, and Paul Scholes, with the latter installed as one of the early favourites to take up the vacancy.

The BT Sport pundit has yet to venture into the managerial arena, but after watching Giggs get the Wales job, Phil Neville take charge of the England women’s team, and Butt take up the head coaching role at United’s youth academy, he may decide to take the plunge into management.

Scholes was a 6/1 shot, but can now be found at 16/1 in the betting.

Meanwhile, Macclesfield manager John Askey has been installed as the early frontrunner for the post. However, after leading his side up into the Football League he’s unlikely to leave, although you simply never know.

Other names in the frame include former Bury and Team Bath boss Chris Casper, ex Scunthorpe manager Graham Alexander, Richie Wellens and John Sheridan.
