Solskjaer offers former teammate Paul Scholes support after Oldham Athletic resignation

Paul Scholes resigned as Oldham Athletic boss just 31 days after taking the job, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been quick to jump to his former teammate’s support.

As noted in Simon Stone’s tweets below, Scholes has explained his decision and hinted at the possibility that he didn’t have the control he expected as manager.

Something fishy has obviously gone down at Oldham. It looks like something has gone on behind the scenes, which Scholes mislead about how much control he would have as manager.

It puts a black mark on his early managerial career but perhaps Scholes is right to walk if promises were broken and he felt managing the side would be more difficult under the owner’s terms?

A supporter of Oldham growing up, Scholes did seem gutted when announcing he was walking from the job but Solskjaer is willing to lend a shoulder to an old friend.

It’s a shame things didn’t work out for Scholes but this might not be the end of his career as a manager. If he wants to dive back in there will be an array of clubs willing to take him on.
