Oldham Boss, Scholes Resigns One Month After Appointment


Manchester United legend, Paul Scholes has resigned as Oldham Athletic manager after 31 days of joining the club. 

Although, there was no confirmation from Oldham, the ex-England star announced his exit in a statement on Thursday.

According to Scholes, he decided to stand down as he feels he can’t ‘operate as he intended’.

“It is with great regret that I have decided to leave the club with immediate effect, said Scholes.

“I hoped to at the very least, see out my initial term of 18 months as the manager of a club I’ve supported all my life. The fans, players, my friends and family all knew how proud and excited I was to take this role.

“In the short period since I took on the role it unfortunately became clear that I would not be able to operate as I intended and was led to believe prior to taking on the role.

“I wish the fans, the players and the staff – who have been tremendous – all the best for the rest of the season and will continue to watch and support the club as a fan.”
