The League Managers' Association have responded to yesterday's statement concerning former manager Russell Slade to provide their own view on the subject. In the LMA response, they also confirm that the situation has been "amicably resolved" and state that "the settlement has been agreed". Like yesterday's statement this points to a financial settlement being agreed by both parties by mutual consent, with the LMA's statement being more explicit in its tone as to what the outcome was.
Aside from partially repeating yesterday's Yeovil Town statement, the LMA had this to say on the matter:
The League Managers Association (LMA) can confirm that Russell Slade and Yeovil Town FC have amicably resolved all issues in relation to his departure from the club in February 2009.
Slade joined Yeovil in 2006 and, during his time in charge, he won the Coca-Cola League One Manager of the Year award in his first full season after leading the club to their highest ever league position as well as the play-off final, just missing out on a place in the Coca-Cola Championship to Blackpool.
Commenting on the issue, LMA Chief Executive, Richard Bevan, said;
"All parties are delighted that the settlement has been agreed in a cordial and professional manner. I am sure that a manager of Russellís experience, will be back in management in the not too distant future."
