Paul Scholes has stepped down as Oldham manager after just 31 days in charge of the League Two club.

The Manchester United legend won his first game in charge after taking over on 11 February, but produced just three draws and three defeats since then.

The Lancashire side are 14th in League Two after the poor run of form and Scholes has chosen to leave the club as he is not comfortable with his level of control over first team matters.

‘It is with great regret that I have decided to leave the club with immediate effect,’ Scholes said in a statement.

‘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 that 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 rest of the season and will continue to watch and support the club as a fan.’

BBC Sport’s Simon Stone suggests that it has been interference from the owner of the club, Abdallah Lemsagam.

When Scholes was appointed, Lemsagem said: ‘Paul will have my backing 100% and hopefully we can work together to bring success back to this club.’
