Former Torquay boss Martin Ling feels he was treated poorly at Plainmoor but he is eyeing a speedy return to management.

The 46-year-old's contract with the Gulls was terminated at the end of the 2012/13 season after he had been on sick leave for the final 20 matches of the season.

Ling has revealed he is back to full health and is looking forward to getting back into a dugout.

He told the Swindon Advertiser: "I went through an illness, it was stress-related and I was ill for three months. I've been well now for three months. Things are very good in that department.

"I felt I was poorly treated by Torquay in terms of promises that were broken in terms of the job.

"All I can say is I felt I did a good job at Torquay. This year when I left we were 17th with a game in hand and looking upwards.

"Then in the 20 games I wasn't active I lost my job for something I think I had no control over. It's a bit disappointing in that respect but all I can say now is I'm well, I'm CV-ing clubs to get back in asap.

"I'm looking for the next adventure for Martin Ling and the good news is I'm fit, well and able to look for that adventure - which is good on my part and my family's part."
