The Bury players have come out in support of their manager Kevin Blackwell after the team was recently relegated from the Championship. The club has suffered from financial difficulties for most of the campaign. The length of the financial issues was learnt when the owners recently made a plea for £ 1 million in order to keep the club afloat. After relegation from the Championship, Blackwell said that his players were not responsible for going down. The finances were responsible for the relegation of the club.
The manager’s position has become under a cloud of doubt in recent weeks following relegation, but most of the squad has come to his backing by saying that he has done an extremely good job. Current captain David Worrall is amongst those giving support to the manager. He has said that the financial mismanagement of massive scale has been responsible for relegation to League One whereas Blackwell has done a great job with the players. The club was recently placed under transfer embargo.
Worrall has said that Blackwell could have easily walk away from the club after knowing their desperately poor financial situation. However, he has stuck by them in the hope of saving the club from relegation.
“I’m sorry for the gaffer and very disappointed in the people above him. He didn’t want this when he first came here. If he would have got told this, would he be here? Would anyone want to do it? Fair play to him, he’s stuck with it. He could have walked at any point and just said it’s not my problem. But he’s stayed and it looks like he’s staying till the end. So fair play to him. I’ve got a lot of time for that,” said Worrall. The club will be hoping to at least get away from the bottom of the table.
