Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has left his role as Oldham manager after just 31 days over claims of broken promises.

After a lengthy process, the 44-year-old became manager of the Sky Bet League Two side last month.

Scholes won his first match at the helm of his hometown club, but subsequently drew three and lost three.

In a statement released to Press Association Sport, the former England midfielder said on Thursday: "It is with great regret that I have decided to leave the club with immediate effect.

"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."

Scholes was appointed as Oldham boss on a one-and-a-half-year deal on February 11.

He resigned as a club director at Salford while retaining his 10 per cent stake, before taking the job.

Sky Bet League One strugglers Oldham have sacked manager Stephen Robinson and replaced him with John Sheridan.

The Latics are bottom of the table and without a win in their last 10 league matches.

Sheridan, who has already enjoyed four spells as both interim and permanent Oldham boss, was sacked by League Two Notts County at the start of January with the Magpies embroiled in a relegation scrap.

Oldham have finally ended their search for a new first-team manager with the appointment of Steve Robinson.

The 41-year-old will leave his position as Motherwell assistant manager and Northern Ireland first-team coach in order to take over at Boundary Park.

Robinson, a former Bournemouth and Luton player who won seven caps for Northern Ireland, will succeed John Sheridan after the 51-year-old departed Oldham in May to take over at Notts County.

Oldham have appointed former England and Blackburn midfielder David Dunn as their interim manager following the departure of Darren Kelly.

The 35-year-old joined the Sky Bet League One club on a one-year deal in July, making eight appearances during Kelly's short reign at Park.

He has now been given an opportunity to turn the Latics' fortunes around after Northern Irishman Kelly's 131-day tenure ended abruptly after a 5-1 home defeat to Peterborough.
