Kevin Blackwell has talked of his frustration at losing players given the clubs financial problems, following the departure of Steven Schumacher.

Speaking to the Manchester Evening News the manager explained.

‘There’s so much frustration I feel as a manager, knowing what needs to be done and not being able to do it. Seeing my best players taken away from me. Schumacher led the team, so he’s a big loss. We were hoping we could keep him, but I believe Fleetwood offered him a two year contract, and at Bury we don’t know what’s going to happen at the end of this week!’

Blackwell says that if the club can’t get itself sorted soon and get the embargo lifted, not only are we likely to lose more players, miss out on the quality we need to bring in and with the long term injuries we have, he knows we could be starting the season with a squad of five or six players only.
