Paul Scholes resigns as Oldham manager after 31 days

Oldham issued a statement shortly after to confirm Scholes' decision.

Scholes, 44, was appointed Oldham Athletic manager on a one-and-a-half-year contract in early February but has stepped down just over a month later.

Scholes left the job on Thursday, citing disillusionment with his working conditions.

Scholes took over from the sacked Frankie Bunn at Oldham after being cleared by the English Football League which decided that his 10 percent stake in fifth-tier Salford City would not represent a conflict of interest.

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.

The laws for exchanges in Japan also requires that investors and creditors get fair compensation and protection. He is likely to avoid prison, unless he commits another crime in the next four years.

Before taking the job, Scholes had reportedly insisted on a no-interference clause being written into his contract but he soon became concerned that somebody in his squad was leaking information about training sessions and team selection to the club's owner Abdallah Lemsagam.

'Both myself and the staff at the club gave Paul all the support and autonomy that he asked for, ' he said. I personally was always supportive of any decisions Paul made or consulted me on, reassuring him that he was the man in charge.

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.

United's interim manager, who was at the club with Scholes for more than a decade, said there was comfort in Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Arsenal because of the performance. He did not raise his concerns at all, informally or formally, prior to his resignation.

I have been in Dubai over the last couple of weeks and actually at ease knowing that he was in charge.
