Poole Town: I am the manager and I would welcome a Taffy Richardson return insists Tom Killick
Richardson fired a parting shot at Poole when he ended his nine-year love affair with the club in the summer before linking up with the New Forest outfit.
The 46-year-old midfielder, a close friend of Killick, was adamant he had been underused and undervalued at Tatnam and claimed he had felt like “a spare part” and “a bit of a charity case”.
Richardson, who left Bash last week after saying he could no longer commit to the club, also felt he had been “fighting certain individuals, including some committee members, who didn’t want me about” during his time at Poole.
Asked by the Daily Echo how Richardson’s comments had gone down at Poole, boss Killick told the Daily Echo: “I don’t really care how they went down with the club. I am the manager of the team.
“As far as I am concerned, there were no issues anyway from |the club’s point of view and, even if there had been, I am the manager and I would love to have Taffy back.
“If it was something he thought he would consider, it would be brilliant for us.
“We have had a lot of success during the past nine years and Taffy was the biggest reason for that. His winning mentality helped transform the club and the whole club has got that mentality now, which is largely because of him.
“I didn’t want him to leave in the first place. It is down to him and I haven’t had a proper opportunity to talk to him.
“It may not suit him. But if there were any possibility of him coming back in some capacity, I would want it to happen.”
