Blackpool appoint Paul Ince as new manager

Posted on by SoccerPunter

English Championship club Blackpool have appointed the former England skipper Paul Ince as the new manager.

Ince is the replacement for Michael Appleton who left for Blackburn in January.

Paul Ince immediate task is to ensure Blackpool survival in England Championship league. They are 10 points off the playoffs in 14th place.

Tom Ince is the current striker for Blackpool and also the son of the new manager.


“Considering I’ve watched the team play for the last 14 months, it’s strange sitting here as the manager, having obviously watched Blackpool as a fan as well as watching my son play,” Ince said.

“I’m delighted, it’s great to be back on the training ground and great to be involved with, and in charge of, a great bunch of lads.

“I’ve worked with a lot of players and the spirit and togetherness of the lads is absolutely fantastic. I’m glad I’ve been given the opportunity by (chairman) Karl Oyston.”

Ince, who has not managed since he left Notts County almost two years ago, had an unsuccessful six-month spell in charge of Blackburn during their time in the English Premier League, winning just six of 21 matches before being dismissed.

He started his managerial career at Macclesfield in 2006 and has had two spells with Milton Keynes Dons, who he led to promotion from League Two in 2008.
