Blackpool FC were stunned by a Sky Sports report on Friday morning claiming that manager Paul Ince had offered to resign and that the club had rejected his offer.
The club were quick to dismiss the story as totally untrue and were bewildered as to its origins.
Sky state that their story came from ‘sources’.
Ince is currently with his squad in Portugal on a week-long training camp. They are due to return on Sunday.
The Gazette understands Ince contacted the club this morning expressing his own amazement at the Sky story.
Blackpool FC today refused to comment further.
