Barry Ferguson has confirmed he’s left Blackpool FC.
The 36-year-old spent two and a half seasons at Bloomfield Road before taking over as stand-in manager for the last 20 games.
It was revealed in The Gazette earlier this week Ferguson was unlikely to return and he’s now confirmed his plans to depart.
“I left as I felt it would be better for someone fresh to come into the job,” he said.
“There are only five players contracted for next season so any new manager is going to need a few quid to build a team.”
