Scholes, who quit Manchester United for retirement back in the summer of 2013, is primed to be appointed Oldham manager.

The Latics have been hunting for a permanent replacement for Frankie Bunn, who was sacked in December after a 6-0 defeat to Carlisle United.

Oldham have been under the charge of Pete Wild in the time since but Scholes is now close to taking the job.

And Ince, who played alongside the former England international at United, believes it is an appointment that ‘doesn’t make sense.’

“I could never ever envisage Scholesy as a manager,” Ince told BBC Radio Five Live.

“He was one of the quietest people.

“Great great player, world class, one of the best players I’ve ever played with.

“But he was so so quiet. It was almost like he didn’t like football. It was like it was a job to him.

“That’s the way he kind of came across.

“So for him to be in that dugout, at that level, yeah.

“When you look at Frank Lampard at Derby and Steven Gerrard at Rangers – then Paul Scholes going to Oldham – it doesn’t make sense.

“But I wish good luck to him.”

Wild steered Oldham to a 3-0 victory over Crawley Town on Saturday.

And, speaking after the match, he admitted that it may have been his last match in the dugout.

“I think so,” he said when asked if it may be his last match in charge.

“But, as with all these eight games, I have come in every morning, tried my best and worked hard, and I’ll just plan for tomorrow.

“I have just got to keep on working like that.”
