Sky Bet League 1: Port Vale boss considers future


Port Vale's boss Micky Adams has done a great job in many fans eyes, steering the Valiants to a creditable 9th spot after promotion last year. Especially as contract negotiations have dragged on and behind the scenes money has been tight at Vale Park.

Adams thanked supporters after Vale's final game of the season - a 0-0 draw at play-off contenders Peterborough and said he was proud of his players, but doesn’t know if it was his final match in charge of the club.

According to The Sentinel, he is set to decide whether to stay at the Vale Park and sign a new one-year rolling contract over the next week, but will also consider interest from rival clubs.

Speaking after Saturday's draw, Adams said: “I am proud of what I have achieved at this football club. If I do walk away, I think I can do so with my head held high.'

“I am not aiming to do that. I think it has been well documented that all I was waiting for was an offer from the chairman. He has done that now, it is in writing, it is with my solicitor, and I will study it.

“I think I have been open and honest and said there are one or two people who want a word with me as well. I have an open mind about everything at the moment but I am really proud of what I have achieved here.

“I thank the supporters for all their support and I hope it is not goodbye but you never know.

“The important thing now is my missus and kids get their dad back because I can’t say I am good to live with during the season. I am sure they will notice the difference in me over the next week or so.

“I need a break, I need to get away and charge my batteries, like every other football manager. I am not saying I have it any harder than anybody else but Port Vale, over the years I have been there, has been a tough club to manage believe you me.
