GAZ WON’T BE A ‘POOL CASUALTY
BURTON boss Gary Rowett has revealed an afternoon spent in A&E with his son influenced his decision to turn down the Blackpool job.
A public spat between ‘Pool manager Jose Riga and chairman Karl Oyston is building to a crescendo after a tumultuous summer, with the Tangerines’ chief reportedly approaching the 40-year-old former Derby defender to take over.
But Rowett said: “It’s very easy to put your own ambitions first, but sometimes it’s not just about a job, it’s about making the right decision based on everything. I’ve got four young children so it’s important to be dad, too.
“On Monday, when I heard about the interest, my little boy, who has just turned six, came back from a friend’s house and had broken his collarbone, so I spent all afternoon in A&E at the local hospital.
“It’s at times like those you appreciate being close to your family.”
