Paul Scholes Explains Why He’s Quit Oldham Job After Just One Month in Charge

Paul Scholes has decided to quit his role as manager of Oldham Athletic this afternoon – just one month after taking up the post.

A lifelong supporter of the League Two side, Scholes took the reins at Boundary Park after a series of protracted negotiations with the club’s hierarchy, and enjoyed a decent start to his life as a senior boss.

However, the Latics are currently six matches without a win, and it seems the frustrations of working further down the footballing pyramid have taken its toll on the ex-Manchester United and England midfielder.

After confirming he was stepping down, Scholes issued a statement hinting that certain promises had not been kept by Oldham board:

Of course, Scholes has a vested interest in Salford City, who could soon be in the same division as Oldham in the next season or two.

But what do you make of today’s news? Should Scholes have stayed put a little longer?
