The pain of relegation.
Unfortunately Blackpool got relegated. We failed to win in our final 7 games at all, and came 18th. After that, my contract ran out and unfortunately I did leave the club.
Many of you will be asking ‘who are you managing now’? Well I can tell you that I’ve moved to Scotland, to manage Europa League side Motherwell. Motherwell, ranked 4th best team in Scotland, will be an excellent challenge to try and get them above Rangers & Celtic, as well as the fact we are also in the Europa League. I signed for Motherwell a year after I left Blackpool as many job applications were turned down, but I look forward to shortly informing you how pre-season went as well as transfers and the start of the season, including our Europa League qualifiers.
But that won’t be my next post – I have now been Belgium manager for 2 years and we’ve just finished the European Championships 2016 – find out how the qualifiers plus the Championships went in my next post – you’ll be in for a surprise.
