Bolton Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson spoke out following Wanderers’ goalless draw with Coventry City at the University of Bolton Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Parkinson fielded the youngest team in Bolton Wanderers’ history with an average age of just 19.
Parkinson also spoke out regarding the future of the club behind-the-scenes, as he asks those in high places to “sort this mess out”.
After speaking with the clubs social media following the draw, the Bolton manager was full of admiration for his playing staff, the supporters and everyone involved at the club, and he also warned Laurence Bassini to “leave us alone”.
“It was a very good day for us at the club, said Parkinson.
“It was an uplifting day for every member of staff, right through the club and that will give everybody a huge lift. The lads went out there, and embraced the occasion. We rode our luck at times, but maybe today we deserved that luck.
“Everyone at the club played their part, last week in getting a team on the pitch, we put in an incredible performance, and today we fielded an even younger team, probably the youngest team in Bolton’s history.
Parkinson went on to discuss the stability of the football club: “Now, behind-the-scenes, it’s up to the powers above to sort the mess out at this club. Everybody is fed up of it, and if it’s Mr Bassini, then come on Laurence, leave us alone now.
“Let this club move on now, it’s s fantastic club, and we need to. move on now, and sort this situation out. I have to reiterate that the supporters have done their bit as well, they’ve come down to Wycombe in numbers, and queued up for tickets in the rain, and they’ve really got behind the lads today.
“Everyone has played their part at this club, and now it’s up to the people behind-the-scenes to sort this club out. This week, not next week.
