'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Nardiello Offered Fresh Start

After a torrid first season at Blackpool, striker Daniel Nardiello has been given a clean slate by new boss Ian Holloway.

Nardiello suffered injury problems galore last term, but a successful loan spell at Hartlepool seems to have invigorated the front man.

Holloway said: 'He was a bright-faced young fella at Manchester United but if you go to a giant of a club like that (where Nardiello started only one game in five years) you have got to be built like King Kong.

'You have to be tough enough to withstand anything, and if you can't you then have to deal with why you weren't good enough for them. You are falling and you have to grip hold of something to stop falling.

'Danny has gone here and there and it hasn't quite worked. He has to deal with that and I will try to help him because I believe most of it has not been self-inflicted at all but has been very unfortunate.

'He has had a few injuries, and I will talk to him and try to get him over those injuries.

'I want to make sure he is tough enough, ready and not too bruised from the past to climb back up.

'That's what good players do - they get knocked down but they get up again.'
