Paul Dickov Offered Blackpool Role

Ex Manchester City striker Paul Dickov has been offered a player / coaching role at Championship side Blackpool.

The 35-year-old striker moved to the Seasiders back in January 2008 on an initial four-month loan, however, since that time the well travelled Scotsman has impressed manager Simon Grayson to an extent that the club are willing to offer Paul a player / coaching position.

Talking to the Blackpool boss said...

'I spoke to Dickie before I went to Norway and we had a good chat.'

'We have offered him a role at the club and a contract and we are waiting to hear back - he has a few options open to him and rightly so he is going to look at each one, he really enjoyed his time with us and he has gone away to think about the role and offer we made to him, along with the other opportunities...'

I had hoped that he would end up coaching at MCFC as all the management wherever he has been say that he is a great motivator and good role model. I also hope that he elects to play for City in the Masters 5 aside footie matches and that he will always be welcome at COMS. KK should never have sold him.

He certainly would have been a great ambassador for our club. He has a passion for City that is sadly lacking in the modern game. Great thought on the Masters - would be wicked seeing him winding everyone up in blue shirt again!

maybe when he actually finishes his career as a player, he may well come back to City, I can see him doing well in management.
