De Roover leaves Blackpool

Blackpool have confirmed assistant coach Bart De Roover has left the club.

De Roover came to England in the summer to assist manager Jose Riga but never signed a contract and was never officially confirmed in the post.

Blackpool have made a miserable start to the new season following a summer of turmoil which left them desperately short of players and forced to cancel a pre-season tour.

They have lost all five of their Sky Bet Championship fixtures to date and crashed out of the Capital One Cup at the hands of Shrewsbury.
