Ian Holloway tips Charlie Adam for ‘big four’


Blackpool manager Ian Holloway believes that midfielder Charlie Adam is good enough to play for one of the Premier League's so-called 'big four' in the future.

The 25-year-old Scotland international has been a star performer for the Seasiders in the last year and a bit and Holloway expects the former rangers man to depart for a bigger challenge at some point.

He commented:"As long as Charlie keeps his mind on football, which he will do as he loves playing and I keep picking him because he trusts me, then there's not going to a problem.

"Whatever happens, happens. It's out of my hands.

"I've got some brilliant players, I want them to be successful and being successful is looking after your family and earning the right amount of money your play deserves. If I can't give them that, then they'll go with my blessing.

"There will be a time when Charlie needs to go – unless we're in a position where Charlie should play – which I think is one of the top four teams.

"I honestly believe he is that good. I think one of them will buy him one day.

"If not they might nick him, because we have a bit of a technicality – if that happens, what can I do? Nothing, so we get on with it."
