Scholes is co-owner of the club along with former United teammates David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Gary and Phil Neville.

His only coaching experience was coaching hometown club Oldham Athletic for 31 days in 2019. He resigned from his position because he “felt unable to work the way he wanted”.

“Salford City Football Club announces that coach Graham Alexander has left the club,” said a statement by the club on its official website, quoted by the BBC on Monday, October 12th.

“The club met with Graham this morning and agreed to split up. The club would like to thank Graham for his contribution and all of his hard work.”

Scholes’ first game as Salford coach was an away game against Port Vale at the weekend.
