In a dramatic post-match interview, Port Vale manager Micky Adams announced he was “considering his future” after ugly scenes following the side’s 5-0 loss to Bristol City.
But some of the abuse at the end there was way over the top. I have to say I have to question my future at the club because of it…
There were confrontations between players, the manager and supporters after the final whistle. The manager was persuaded to leave by player Chris Robertson and a Bristol City steward and he later faced the media to comment: “I think supporters who pay good money to go and watch their team, whether it be home or away, have a right to be disappointed when they see their team don’t turn up. And I feel disappointed for them.
“But if you go on the football circuit they say how well we have done, the real football people. That’s not to say we haven’t got knowledgeable football fans because we have.
“But some of the abuse at the end there was way over the top. I have to say I have to question my future at the club because of it.
“I have been abused by football supporters before, but I think I have done okay for this club and I can’t sit by and accept what was said to me.
“I think it was disgusting. As I have said before, I will leave my future to the end of the season, but certainly it is up in the air at the moment, the way I feel.”
