5 great players who flopped as managers
- These five players had very forgettable careers in management
#2 Paul Scholes
Scholes built his reputation at Manchester United as one of the finest midfielders in the world. He played 718 times for United in all competitions, scoring 155 goals, and winning a host of trophies. He won the Champions League on two occasions, as well as the Premier League title 11 times, including once after coming out of retirement to play for United in 2012.
However, things didn’t work out for Scholes in management. He took over at League Two club Oldham Athletic in February, and things started well with a 4-1 win over Yeovil Town in his first game. He was in charge for just another six games but failed to win any of them. He eventually resigned after just 31 days at the helm, blaming the board for failing to give him full control over club matters.Published 17 Mar 2019, 06:47 IST
