Busy Ince Fully Committed

Busy Ince Fully Committed

Paul Ince has moved to quash rumours that he's preparing, or had even offered, to leave Blackpool.

A "troubled" relationship with Karl Oyston was cited a possible area of fraction but Ince insists that he's got a fine relationship with the chairman and they're working together to bring in players.

Ince said: 'The chairman understands where I'm at with it, and my relationship with the chairman is fantastic, second to none. One on one we get on really great.

'As a manager you have different opinions. We agree on most things but we'll never agree on everything.

'Some of the things he thinks are right, I think are wrong and probably vice-versa. That's part of the relationship you have with people, you have to put your views across and ultimately he makes the final decision.'

Moves into the transfer market are taking up a lot of Ince's time, so moving on is far from what's on Ince's mind he's working hard to bring in the players Blackpool need.

He also said: 'We're going to have to try and bring in seven or eight players in the space of three weeks and try and get them used to the way we're playing.

'It will take time, we just have to get on with it. I want to be competitive, I want a competitive team and I want to go into every game next year thinking we've got a chance of winning.

'Therefore, because we're short on numbers, you can't just jump to anyone that's free and that wants to come to Blackpool.'

If you're going to be ultra critical then you could state that Ince hasn't actually categorically denied he's staying with the club has he, however if he wasn't would he really be stating what he's working towards?

There's going to be a lot of hard work and effort in the coming weeks to ensure that the Tangerines are up and running, the last thing they want to be doing is playing catch up with players arriving on the eve of the season and needing to do their pre-season during the season.
