Swindon manager Iffy Onuora has confirmed the club have ended their alliance with Ron Atkinson.
The former Manchester United boss was commissioned by a TV company to report on the club's struggle to stay in League One.
The partnership was questioned given Atkinson was sacked as an ITV pundit for making a racist remark and that Onuora is one of the few black managers in the league.
Onuora told Radio Five Live's Sportsweek programme: 'I was interested to know (about that) and being a new manager I was willing to see what I could learn.
'But we never had the opportunity from the off to build up any relationship.
'We once spoke on the way to Swansea and had a long chat. But the cameras were rolling and I felt it was a little bit contrived.
'I don't know him now any more than I did before.'
Onuora added: 'I went in with an open mind but the TV people wanted a bit more access than I felt I was able to give in our situation.
'Everyone took the point of view it just was not working.'
