Paul Scholes leaves Oldham coaching role after just one month

Paul Scholes

The former Manchester United and England midfielder won just a single match during his short tenure, drawing three and losing three since taking charge at his boyhood club on February 11th.

"Oldham Athletic are disappointed by Paul's decision to resign and surprised by the reasons he has given", he told Sky Sports News.

Early signs were positive, the 44 year old began his managerial career with a 4-1 win against Yeovil Town, but that was to be his only victory, the latest defeat coming against league leaders Lincoln City on Tuesday.

Scholes' resignation will be seen as a massive blow to the club and owner Abdallah Lemsagam, who, Revolution News understands, was prepared to back the former England worldwide, despite only claiming one win in his first and only seven games in charge.

"It's is with great regret I have made a decision to leave the club with immediate effect".

But Scholes has stepped down from his post, hinting at communication problems with the club's board. I was content to remain in League Two for this season and working with the team we have for the remainder of this season is important.

"He did not raise his concerns at all, informally or formally, prior to his resignation. Paul will have my backing 100% and hopefully we can work together to bring success back to this club". I personally believed that he would be the manager to take us forward this season and next and I know many of you felt the same.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has invited former team-mate Paul Scholes to come into Manchester United for a chat following his abrupt exit from Oldham.

"I hoped to, at the very least, see out my initial 18 months as the manager of a club I've supported all my life".

"We wish him well and thank him for his contribution".
