Newcastle United welfare officers visit Blackpool regarding Elias Sorensen situation

6 months ago

Elias Sorensen hasn’t had the most successful loan move so far.

Much in demand in January, Blackpool won the race to sign the prolific striker for the rest of this season.

Signed 30 days ago, Elias Sorensen has only had 32 minutes of football so far.

Blackpool boss Terry McPhillips claims there is nothing unusual about this.

Simply saying he has a squad and some players will miss out.

He also revealed that Newcastle had sent a couple of welfare officers down to Blackpool today to watch the 19 year old train and to chat about the player.

Terry McPhillips speaking to the Blackpool Gazette:

“Some good players have missed out on squads.

“I think the week before Chris Taylor and Michael Nottingham missed out.

“If we get a couple of players back I’ll have the same problem this weekend, so I don’t know who will miss out but someone will have to.

“It’s not the nice part of the job but it is part of the job.

“I speak to the Newcastle Under-23 coach who I know anyway and he’s sound as a pound.

“I tell him where Elias is up to.

“They’ve had a couple of welfare officers here today to meet us and to watch the training, which they’ve done.”
