Lechia Gdansk manager Ricardo Moniz is the latest to be linked with the vacant managerial position at Blackpool, so say the Blackpool Gazette.
The Dutchman has a wealth of experience with spells at Tottenham, Hamburg and Feyenoord to name a few and would represent a step in the seemingly modern direction, with a whole host of clubs now appointing their manager’s from abroad.
Chairman Karl Oyston and head of youth operations Richie Kyle were in attendance as Moniz’s side defeated Polish giants Lech Poznan 2-1 on Friday. This visit has led to the 50-year-old emerge as the bookies favourite to take the job, but any such approach will be delayed with Gdansk set to feature in Poland’s end-of-season play-offs.
Moniz is just one name on a short-list drawn up by the Blackpool board and it is understood that Oyston has met one of these managers already, with another scheduled in for today.
Blackpool currently only have six senior players registered for next season. Contract discussions with a further eight will take place, but only once a new manager is appointed.
