Hartlepool United chairman Raj Singh has expressed his disappointment regarding the comments made by former manager Craig Hignett following his sacking.
Hignett claimed that he wasn’t backed in the summer as he was tasked to reduce the club’s wage bill by £200,000 while also assembling a competitive squad.
He made seven permanent signings with a further two joining on loan.
But an underwhelming start to the National League season saw Singh come to the decision to relieve Hignett of his duties.
Singh admitted sacking Hignett was one of the toughest professional decisions he’s had to make despite not contacting his former employee before hand.
