Former Blackpool striker Michael Chopra has taken to Twitter to blast his former club and give an insight into why the club have struggled to add to their squad of just eight players so far this summer.
The former Sunderland and Cardiff hitman, released by the Seasiders at the end of the season, claimed that the club was unlike any other club he had been at as the players were, among other things, asked to wash their own kit.
He tweeted: "Wash ur own kit clean ur own boots and even bring ur own water to training can only happen at Blackpool". Hardly likely to entice anyone to Bloomfield Road.
The club's dire situation was highlighted when boss Jose Riga cancelled their pre-season tour in order to focus on recruitment. The club would have been unable to put out a full XI of senior players.
It is not the first time Chopra has vented his frustration towards the club on Twitter - last season, while still playing for the club, he earned a £10,000 fine after complaining that he was one of only six players present at training.
