Holloway laughs off walkout claim

Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has laughed off reports that he was considering walking out on the Premier League new boys.

Holloway was reported to be considering his future at Bloomfield Road just weeks after guiding the Seasiders into the top-flight after failing to agree terms on a new contract.

"Anyone that thinks I would walk out on the club must be mad," he told the Blackpool Gazette.

"For people to think that I would walk out without saying anything and that (chairman) Karl (Oyston) and I would fall out badly is quite ridiculous.

"My intention is to lead Blackpool in the Premier League next season and that's the chairman's intention too.

"It's gone on for a few weeks, but we are pretty close to sorting it out I think. We are still in talks.

"I hear all sorts of other things about me walking out and I don't know where they come from."
