New Blackpool manager Lee Clark insists sentiment will go out the window when he returns to Fulham.

The Blackpool boss spent seven years at Craven Cottage as a player between 1999-2005, scoring 22 goals in 140 appearances for the west Londoners.

However, the struggling Seasiders are rock-bottom of the table after just one win from their opening 15 games.

Clark said: “I had seven fantastic years there. I’ve got terrific memories of the place, but I’m going there with allegiances to Blackpool and trying to get a result.

“I helped the club through a terrific period and, up until Roy Hodgson was in charge, it was our highest finish in the Premier League.

“We qualified for the UEFA Cup and went to places like Old Trafford and got results. It was a fantastic time for me.”
