Holloway rejected mega bucks offer to stick with Blackpool

Ian Holloway has turned down a mega bucks contract to remain in charge of Blackpool.

The Sunday Mirror says despite leading Blackpool to the promised land of top-flight football and an estimated £90million windfall following the May play-off victory over Cardiff, Holloway remains on just £200,000 a year.

It's a salary more in keeping with a poorly-paid Championship boss.

Holloway's contract with the Tangerines is based on a verbal option to extend his original 12-month deal by a further year if he ­succeeded in keeping Blackpool in the Championship.

One Championship club who tried to lure him in the summer - and offered a £600,000-a-year rise - accused him of blind loyalty.

It appears Holloway has no intention of walking away from managing a Premier League club irrespective of what he's paid.
