Former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Scholes has been charged with misconduct for allegedly breaking FA betting rules.

It's alleged that Scholes, who recently left his first managerial role in charge of boyhood club Oldham Athletic, made the bets whilst he was part-owner of National League high-flyers Salford City - something the lawmakers at the FA don't look upon with any sort of fondness.

It is alleged that the 44-year-old former England worldwide placed 140 bets on football matches between August 2015 and January 2019, the FA said in a statement.

He has until April 26 to respond to the FA charge.

Scholes made 720 appearances for Manchester United, coming out of retirement in 2012 to rejoin the ranks at Old Trafford in Sir Alex Ferguson's penultimate season.

He initially retired from playing in 2011 but reversed that decision the following year to help the club through an injury crisis.

In January 2015 Scholes and Phil Neville took temporary charge of Salford for a game against Kendal Town following the sacking of manager Phil Power.
