Belgian Leaves Bloomfield Road

Blackpool Football Club can confirm that Head Coach José Riga has had his contract terminated with immediate effect.

The Belgian, 57, departs Bloomfield Road having won just one of his 15 games in charge of The Seasiders. The club currently sits bottom of The Championship table on six points from a possible 42 available. 

"We couldn't leave the decision any longer to give someone else the opportunity to help us work our way out of the position we are currently in," Chairman Karl Oyston said.

First-team coach Noel Blake will take charge of training tomorrow.
