Blackpool chairman Oyston welcomes Ince appointment

Blackpool chairman Karl Oyston is delighted with the appointment of Paul Ince as new manager.

The former Manchester United and England midfielder signed a one-year rolling contract at Bloomfield Road on Monday, and Oyston has high hopes for his reign.

Oyston told the club's official website: "I'm pleased that we've got someone who is very enthusiastic and wants to bring disciplines that I think we're lacking.

"We definitely needed a change of direction in many ways and whilst in my 15 years here I've never really felt it necessary, or for the best interests of the club that I get involved in the football side of things in anything other than an overview way.

"I think it was getting to the stage where I was going to be forced to get involved in the football side of the business because we lacked direction. I think I used the word rudderless which was quite appropriate."
