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