Paul Scholes resigned his position as the manager of English League One side Oldham Athletic via WhatsApp according to reports.
It is believed that the club’s chairman Abdallah Lemsagam received Paul Scholes resignation message Wednesday afternoon.
The Former Manchester United midfielder won one of his seven games in charge of Oldham, including three draws and three defeats.
Scholes had earlier stated after his resignation that the Club failed to deliver some of the promises made to him before he took over the position, a statement Abdallah Lemsagam countered and accused the former pundit of not speaking about challenges he’s facing before throwing the towel.
“Oldham Athletic are disappointed by Paul’s decision to resign and surprised by the reasons he has given,”
“The club gave Paul all the support and autonomy that he asked for. He did not raise his concerns at all, informally or formally, prior to his resignation.
He gave no opportunity to address any issues at all, simply resigning by text and then refusing to discuss matters.
“Management is a difficult job and we would have worked with Paul to find solutions, had we been given the chance. We wish him well and thank him for his contribution.
We will start the search for a new manager immediately.” The Club said.
