WINSFORD United are still to make a decision on the future of manager Joe Gibiliru who steered the club to Vodkat Premier League safety.
The Blues boss told the Chronicle last month that he was going to leave the Barton Stadium at the end of the season.
But after United survived the drop, despite winning just two of their games in 2009, Gibiliru was asked to attend meetings with the club’s board with a view to keeping the Liverpudlian at Winsford for a third year.
A meeting was held last week but rather than completing a u-turn and staying put at United, Gibiliru revealed that his future remains unclear.
He said: “Nothing has been sorted yet to be honest. Unless something happens in the next 24 hours then we haven’t sorted anything yet.
“The right decisions need to be made for the future of the club. I have received a couple of phone calls from board members and that is how things are going.
“Whatever the club decides, I am being amicable. I am enjoying this little rest at the moment but hopefully something will be decided soon.”
Chairman Loveless confirmed that an announcement will be made next week by which time a decision will have been taken.
He refused to rule out a change of management but was considering a proposal set out by Gibiliru during the meeting.
He said: “We met with Joe for about 20 minutes and he made a proposal to us about working in partnership with Dave Riddler who is currently a coach at Liverpool FC.
“Last season was tough but we were the only local club out of the three to stay in the division it started in. We have spoken about what went wrong.
“I do have other people in mind for the position so it’s up in the air at the moment. I have to make sure that we have the right people in the job to take us forward next season.”
