Scholes quits Oldham after one month in charge of club

Paul Scholes invited for Manchester United visit after leaving Oldham

When Scholes joined the club, owner Abdallah Lemsagam insisted he was ecstatic with the appointment, telling the club's website: "Paul has won everything there is to win in football".

Oldham and Paul Scholes have parted ways, with the former England player leaving his coaching role after just one month.

"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".

Oldham have confirmed Scholes resigned from his position.

In a statement, the former England midfielder said on Thursday: "It is with great regret that I have chose to leave the club with immediate effect".

Scholes' statement suggests he was misled in some way by the club. I personally was always supportive of any decisions Paul made or consulted me on reassuring him that he was the man in charge.

I continued to encourage him despite the results and reassured him that his job was secure. He did not raise any concerns at all about the team or any other matters 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".

The Latics are now 14th place in the League Two table, nine points off the play-off positions with nine games to go.

"I hope to, at the very least, see out my initial term of 18-months as the manager". As a club we wish him well again and thank him for his contribution.

He had worked alongside Ryan Giggs when his former team mate and current Wales manager took caretaker charge of Manchester United for four matches following David Moyes's sacking in 2014.
