Former West Bromwich Albion manager Gary Megson has told Sky Sports News he did not resign his post at The Hawthorns, as stated by the club.
The Midlands outfit accepted Megson's letter, which informed the club he would not be extending his contract, as his resignation.
However, the 45-year-old has claimed he did not offer to leave his job and was eager to see out the remainder of the season with The Baggies.
"I certainly didn't resign. In terms of being sacked, you'd have to ask other people that but I can categorically deny I resigned," said Megson to Sky
"I wrote a memo to the chairman and the rest of the board yesterday just stating at the end of my contract on June 30 I wouldn't be staying at that."
Megson was surprised when he was informed by Albion chairman Jeremy Peace on Tuesday evening that he was relieved of his managerial duties.
