Mansfield Town have told teenager Conor Green he has no future with the club as a player – but they have pledged to help the 18-year-old left-sided player fulfil an ambition to become a physio.
“We’ve made a decision with Conor,” said boss Adam Murray.
“We’ve had a meeting with him and we don’t feel in the immediate future Conor will affect the first team.
“He is a great lad and we will continue to do everything we can for him.
“I know he has a career path lined up that he wants to be a physio so he is going to come in and work with our physio to get some experience before he goes to Uni which will give him the life experience of being a physio.
“We have a lot of time for him. Like all our young pups, if we can’t find them another club that we trust to get the best out of them, we will help them in their life skills.”
He added: “We have some big decisions on the kids coming up.”
