Port Vale manager Micky Adams has controversially announced his intention to become a director of the League Two club – and says it is to enable him to bring in new players.
At present, Adams cannot make signings or negotiate contracts as there are not enough directors on the board following Vale’s Extraordinary General Meeting where two directors were expelled by shareholders.
“I need to sign players. At the moment I only have 13 registered,” a bullish Vale boss told BBC Radio Stoke.
“I’m not interested in sitting in a boardroom and talking about how many meat pies we’re going to sell on a Saturday, or if there’s a problem in the ladies’ toilets.
“I’ve been asked to solve a short-term problem. It’s a football matter and nothing to do with the EGM.”
