Following the clubs relegation yesterday at dens park, owners football partners scotland (fps), for the second time, have failed to offer any public reassurances that Jim McIntyre will remain as manager for the 2019/20 campaign in the championship.
The statement read: “Everyone at the club is devastated by this outcome following a very difficult season on the park for Dundee Football Club.
“We would like to confirm again that John Nelms, Tim Keyes and Football Partners Scotland are fully committed to the club. The long-term plans FPS have for the club remain in place and they remain optimistic that they will come to fruition.
“As pointed out in the club statement earlier this week, with the season drawing to an end we will hold our annual review and decide what changes need to be made in order to have a successful season on the park in 2019/20.
“We would like to thank every supporter for their backing throughout the season. The dedication even in these testing times has been clear to see and everyone connected at the club is incredibly proud of the fans and grateful to them.”
As the game entered its final stages yesterday, chants of "10 in a row, he's got to go" rang round the home support as the fans voiced their verdict on our worse ever manager who has now guided us to ten defeats on the trot to ensure our exit from the Premiership.
Despite the fans unanimously letting the manager and owners know they have no faith in the current regime in the dugout, McIntyre said he is “determined” to lead the club out of the Championship next term.
Acknowledging the fans reaction yesterday McIntyre said: “Rightly so. I totally understand it. They have just watched their team get relegated and we have not offered enough to win the game.
“I don’t know any support that would be clapping us off the park. It’s not been good enough and me being at the helm, I take full responsibility.
“They are obviously hurting big time and so are we. It’s hurt like this that we have got to try and use to bounce back up at the first time of asking.
“I’m absolutely determined to do that. It’s my responsibility and it’s my responsibility to get the club back up. Unless I’m told otherwise, that’s exactly what I will be planning.”
