SHOCKING! Paul Scholes stand down as Oldham Athletic manager

Oldham Athletic manager, Paul Scholes has resigned after being in charge at the club for just 31 days.

Scholes explained that he decided to stand down after he felt that he can’t ‘operate as he intended’.

During his time as a manager, Scholes won only one game, lost three and drew the other three.

Read Scholes statement below: “It is with great regret that I have decided to leave the club with immediate effect,”.

“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.”
