Paul Scholes leaves Oldham Athletic after just over a month in charge

Scholes' last game was a 2-0 defeat to Lincoln City

Paul Scholes has left his position as manager of Oldham Athletic after just over a month in charge of the League Two club.

Scholes took over at Boundary Park on February 11 and has managed the club for just seven games, in which they won one game, drew three and lost three.

His final game was a 2-0 loss away to Lincoln City.

A statement released by Scholes said: "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 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 season and I will continue to watch and support the club as a fan."
