Holloway has been in charge at Bloomfield Road since May 2009 and has overseen a dramatic rise for the Seasiders.

Last campaign Blackpool achieved promotion to the Premier League from the Championship, despite being tipped to be relegated from the latter.

This season the Tangerines have impressed in England's top flight, with the team garnering 15 points from their opening 13 games.

And Adam puts much of their success down to Holloway, telling The Guardian: "He is nuts but he is good at the right things.

"He always helps the lads if they have any problems. If you need a day off here or there, away from it, then he will give you that.

"He knows everything. Tactically he is very good. He always goes on about Jose Mourinho. I think he plans in the next month or so to go and see Jose in Madrid, watch his training and have a chat, which would be some meeting to listen in to.

"He just wants to become a better manager and learn from the best. He is a top manager and a great person to work for.

"It would be sad for Blackpool to lose that kind of person, that icon, because of how well he has done."
