Port Vale manager says he won’t quit but admits Lincoln loss was unacceptable

Port Vale manager Neil Aspin said he’s no quitter after the side’s awful 6-2 home loss to Lincoln City on Saturday.

It is easy to walk away from things in life. But I don’t walk away from anything. But you are always going to be dependent on what results you get if you stay in a job…

Aspin held a meeting with his squad before speaking to the media and said: “I think by the fact that it is quarter to seven and there is ten press still outside, you either expect me to have been sacked or expect me to have walked out. I think that is why you are all waiting.

“So, I would say that I am not the type of person that will walk out because it is not something I have ever done in my career. I am not that type of person. I would only leave if I was sacked and that is not the case. I haven’t been sacked.

“I think any manager, if you lose 6-2 at home, it is obviously a result that could get you the sack, there is no question about that. But it is easy to walk away from things in life. But I don’t walk away from anything. But you are always going to be dependent on what results you get if you stay in a job.

“Any defeat like that has to put your job in jeopardy, but I will still be here next week.”
