Former Chelsea defender Winston Bogarde has applied for the manager’s job at Sky Bet League One outfit Oldham Athletic, according to the Daily Mail.
The 44-year-old had a four year stint at Chelsea from 2000 to 2004, but managed to make a mere nine appearances for the London club in them four years.
Bogarde has a wealth os experience of playing for some of the biggest clubs in European football, having had spells at Sparta Rotterdam, Ajax, AC Milan and Barcelona.
Oldham Athletic are currently managerless after former boss Lee Johnson left the club to join fellow League One outfit Barnsley.
The Latics currently sit in 11th place in Sky Bet League One, having accumulated 46 points from 33 league games thus far this season.
Oldham put an end to their dreadful run of form last night, after defeating Port Vale 1-0, courtesy of a solitary goal from Mike Jones.
The news of Bogarde’s interest in the Oldham job comes soon after the news that the League One club were eyeing a move to bring Manchester United legend Paul Scholes into management.
