Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has confirmed he will offer his resignation in the row over team selection.
The Seasiders have been fined £25,000 after Holloway made 10 changes to his starting XI for a game at Aston Villa last November, in which the Seasiders were beaten 3-2 after a last-gasp winner from James Collins for the hosts.
Holloway said following the game that he would walk away if the club were punished, and the 47-year-old has now revealed he will stick to his vow.
He told the Blackpool Gazette: “He (acting chairman Karl Oyston) will be getting my resignation because that is how strongly I feel. It is up to him whether he chooses to take it.
“I don't know who I am working for. I have done the best job I could for this club and have tried to win every single game, including the game at Aston Villa.”
However, Oyston has already stated he will do all he can to hold on to Holloway, who guided the Seasiders to their shock promotion last season after they had been made one of the favourites for relegation from the Championship.
He told Sky Sports News: “He (Holloway) has been a breath of fresh air, not just for Blackpool, but for the whole Premier League.
“He has obviously done wonderful things in his time at Blackpool and it would be ridiculous for Ian, on a point of principle, however strongly we both feel, to suffer any kind of personal loss.
“I will do everything neccesary to keep him here and have no doubt I'll be successful in that.”
