Port Vale owner Norman Smurthwaite says he is “pretty confident” that manager Micky Adams will stay but he will not pressure him into a deadline to agree a new deal.
Adams’ future has dragged on over the season and many fans feel that a deadline is needed so that the club can move on either with or without the manager. With the manager’s future also affecting players’ contract negotiations and season ticket sales, it is seem as crucial that after twelve months of speculation, a decision is finally made.
Adams has claimed that he has had interest from other clubs and indicated that he will reach a decision on Monday, after a short break.
I am optimistic that Micky Adams will make a decision that is right for him, and I am pretty confident that will mean he manages Port Vale going forward…
However, Smurthwaite is happy to wait commenting: “I am optimistic that Micky Adams will make a decision that is right for him, and I am pretty confident that will mean he manages Port Vale going forward.
“I personally like Micky, and his family, and I hope he will stay. But I want him to stay here for the right reasons.
“I don’t want to be working with someone who felt pressurised into making a decision.
“If he stays we will be a team through good and bad, that is what is right for this club.”
