Paul Scholes has left his role as manager of Oldham after just 31 days in charge.
The former Manchester United midfielder’s job with his hometown club was the first senior managerial role of his career, but it has come to an end after just one month.
“It’s is with great regret I have decided to leave the club with immediate effect,” he said. “I hoped to at the very least, see out my initial term of 18 months as the manager.
“The fans, players, my friends, family all knew how proud and excited I was to take this role. In short period since I took on role it unfortunately became clear 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.”
Scholes’ tenure began with a 4-1 victory over Yeovil Town, however they failed to win any of their next six games, losing three times, and sit 14th in League Two.
