Paul Scholes: Former Manchester United and England midfielder leaves role as Oldham Athletic manager


Former Manchester United and England midfielder Paul Scholes has left his role as Oldham Athletic manager after just 31 days.
The 44-year-old took over on 11 February and was in charge for just seven games, winning only one.
Scholes said in a statement that he had taken the decision with "great regret".
"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," he continued.
Scholes took over with the Latics 14th in the table, nine points off the play-offs, and leaves with them in the same position.
He began his reign with a 4-1 win over Yeovil Town, but three draws and two defeats followed prior to his final match, a 2-0 defeat by league leaders Lincoln City on Tuesday.
"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," he said.
"The fans, players, my friends and family all knew how proud and excited I was to take this 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 made 718 appearances for Manchester United, including 499 in the Premier League, and scored 155 goals in all competitions.
He initially announced his retirement at the end of the 2010-11 season, but made a comeback at the start of 2012 before finally calling time on his career having won 11 Premier League titles, three FA Cups, two League Cups, five Community Shields and two Champions Leagues.
He also played 66 times for England, retiring after Euro 2004 to focus on his club career.

Wonder what he means by  not being "able to operate as I intended and was led to believe prior to taking on the role"?


He took over after the transfer window closed so surely knew what players he had and that he was not getting any more!

Interesting.  Scholes is a strong character and not one that gives up easily so I am not sure what the significance of his claims in the statement really are. My speculation is that interference higher up or his health could be at the back of it.

I hope we hear more about about this soon.

His situation became untenable' - Analysis

BBC Sport's Simon Stone
There were plenty, privately as well as publicly, who told Scholes that cutting his managerial teeth at Oldham was a bad idea.
But, such was his long-held desire to manage his hometown club, he ignored them all.
As he has proved so regularly as a pundit, Scholes is a straight talker. He is also decisive.
It was always the case he would resist any outside interference, which is a claim that has been levelled at Oldham owner Abdallah Lemsagam on more than one occasion, and in the end, the former Manchester United midfielder's status became untenable.
To many, it will not come as a surprise. To others, there will be a sense of satisfaction given how brutal Scholes has been at dishing out criticism from the comfort of the pundit's chair.
Yet there is sadness too - sadness that Scholes couldn't make his dream job work, and sadness that one of those most gifted players of his generation should find himself on the outside again when surely, there is a role for him inside.

I read that earlier and opined he knew what he was taking on with the owner. Just didn't think it would bother him that much.

To put it mildly I’m not overly fond of Scholes despite him having been a brilliant player.

Having said that he’s well out of there,  the reports in the local paper don’t reflect well on the owner.  It appears the interference was the main reason he left but ‘little’ things like the team bus not turning up for an away to Bury because of unpaid bills and bailiffs turning off the gas so the players had to wash their own shirts seemed to upset him. 

I have little knowledge of Oldham but it certainly appears it’s another disaster in the making because of a t### owner.

We have just about stamped out racism, homophobia and sexism in football, the next big challenge is gingerisim, a particular problem at Man City, I have heard the chant..

"Get out of our club, get out of our club, the big ginger bastard get out of our club".


Have you ever wondered why Pep shaves his head?

Oi. Pep is not ginger!!!!!  

And may I mention a chap who is rather liked at City.  Kevin De Bruyne.  I love people with slightly gingered hair.  More strawberry blond tbh.
