McMahon resigns at Bloomfield Road

Last updated : 16 January 2004 By The Chairman
Blackpool manager Steve McMahon handed in his resignation at Blackpool yesterday only to withdraw it again during the middle of a press conference. McMahon had admitted that he had applied for the vacant Boundary Park job but has since denied that the story was true.

His reasons for quitting Bloomfield Road were quoted as, “I just seem to be stuck on the rung in the middle of the ladder and I need to climb it. It's difficult for me in these circumstances and that’s why I offered my resignation. My issue is team building for this football club and with no funds I don't think I can take this team any further - that's my issue.” Our question to you Steve is, “Why should you think that the grass is any greener at Boundary Park?”
