That is what club chairman Abdullah Lemsagam told Sky Sports on Thursday.

Another fan wrote (tongue in cheek, mind): 'Luckily for Paul Scholes, Jose Mourinho is not the type to remember everything he said about him during his time at Manchester United then bring up his subsequent short stint at Oldham Athletic when the opportunity arises.

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.

The 44-year has left his role just 31 days into the job.

In a statement, the former England midfielder said on Thursday: "It is with great regret that I have chose to leave the club with immediate effect". "Paul will have my backing 100% and hopefully we can work together to bring success back to this club".

"I was very surprised as he simply resigned by text on Wednesday afternoon and has refused to discuss matters that influenced him to make his decision".

"He did not raise his concerns at all, informally or formally, prior to his resignation".

"Management is a hard job and we would have worked with Paul to find solutions, had we been given the chance".

"I hope he hasn't sent the message via WhatsApp".

"Obviously it looks like a miscommunication between Paul and the owner".

Scholes was one of a number of former United players who publicly voiced a displeasure at the job Mourinho was doing as his tenure at Old Trafford hurtled towards a sour end after two years.

"Now, employers are going to look and think 'well, is he going to walk away again?'".

Oldham have confirmed Scholes resigned from his position.
