Ex Manchester United duo Paul Scholes and Phil Neville take charge at Salford


Former Manchester United stars Phil Neville and Paul Scholes were in the dugout for Salford City's game against Kendal Town on Saturday.

BBC Sport pundit Neville, 37, and Scholes, 40, took temporary charge after manager Phil Power suddenly left the Evo-Stik Division One North side.

The pair, alongside ex-United team-mates Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Gary Neville, own a 50% share in the club.

Phil Neville has spent time as a coach at both Old Trafford and Everton.

However, the former England defender has not had a coaching role since leaving Manchester United prior to Louis van Gaal's appointment as manager.

Neville won six Premier League titles, three FA Cups and one Champions League trophy with Manchester United, while ex-midfielder Scholes won the league title 11 times and Champions League twice.

The game, in front of just 268 fans, saw a 2-1 win for the home side.
