​Charlie Adam has hinted he could one day return to Blackpool as a coach or manager, having spent two-and-a-half years with the club as a player during their spell in the Premier League.

Adam, now at ​Stoke City, became a club legend at Blackpool as he scored in the Championship playoff final to help the Seasiders reach the Premier League in 2010.

Since their relegation from the top flight after just one season in the division, and Adam's subsequent move to Liverpool, Blackpool have endured a turbulent decade as the club continue to struggle with financial difficulties in League One.

As quoted by ​Lancashire live, Adam declined to rule out a return to Bloomfield Road: "No, absolutely not. Blackpool is where I felt I played my best football. If ever there was a manager’s capacity or a coaching capacity, you never know what the future brings. But ruling out a return? Absolutely not.

“I’m really looking forward to going back because it’s a long time since I’ve been there.

“My kids have never been there, and I look forward to taking them and showing them what we achieved. I’m hoping to catch a game between now and the end of the season and enjoy the atmosphere."

Blackpool are currently tenth in League One and have recently removed owner Owen Oyston from their board.

"It’s been carnage the last few years but it’s nice that’s finally come to an end and the real people of the football club can now go and support their team," Adam told the ​Blackpool Gazette.

“The supporters have been amazing with me since I joined 10 years ago and it’s great they can look forward to Saturday. This could change the whole picture for the town and the club, and it’s something we should all look forward to.”
