Blackpool manager resignation reports 'fiction'
« on: June 30, 2013, 10:27:50 AM »
Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston has described reports he has rejected an offer of resignation from manager Paul Ince  as "absolute fiction".
Oyston said that both he and Ince, currently with the Blackpool squad on a pre-season training camp in Portugal, had been left "bemused" by the story.
He was as surprised as we were," Oyston told BBC North West Tonight.
"We had to send a picture of the headline for him to think we weren't winding him up."
Oyston revealed the pair had been discussing possible transfer targets in a telephone conversation on Friday morning, shortly before the reports surfaced.
And, although there has been a collective frustration at a lack of summer transfer activity at Bloomfield Road, he insisted there is no foundation to any stories of tension between chairman and manager, adding that he has a "very good" relationship with the ex-England captain.
The plot thickens,but suppose it sells newspapers  :thumbup: :thumbup:
