Scudamore refutes Ollie claims
The Tangerines manager claimed earlier this week: “They (the
Premier League) will be relieved if we lose and get relegated –
then I am not badgering them.” However, Scudamore today told BBC
Sport: “They’ve been a breath of fresh air, they’ve come up on
sporting merit and played positively, therefore they deserve it.
“If on Sunday they still deserve that place they’re welcome to
stay.” Blackpool are currently 18th in the table and are one of
five teams battling to avoid the drop. They could be the first side
to win at Old Trafford and yet still suffer an immediate return to
the npower Championship. However, with five teams separated by a
single point, they could also survive by losing Sunday’s match away
to the champions.
