Estonian international Zenjov signed a one-year deal at Bloomfield Road after joining from Ukrainian side FC Karpaty Lviv.

And the 25-year-old aspires to become a favourite with the club's supporters.

He told the club's official website: "I am very happy to sign for Blackpool. It is a club with a long history and I'm looking forward to making a name for myself.

"The stadium is very nice and I have heard a lot about the fans. The team has supportive fans and I hope to be a fans' favourite."

He added: "I have played the majority of my career in the Ukrainian league, which is a quite competitive and tough league. I was there six seasons so I am experienced enough to come here and fight for a place in the team and help Blackpool. The coach knows my qualities and will use them in the right way."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
