Interim boss Alex Morris says that the Crewe Alexandra board are fully aware of the ‘holes and gaps’ that persist in the team and the squad.
The vastly experienced coach is hoping to make the full progression and be appointed as the club’s next permanent manager as the club aim to rebuild following relegation to League Two.
Morris has already discussed recruitment and the future of certain players going forward as he implements a structure and culture to improve all aspects of the club.
Crewe finish the season with an away game at Lincoln City this weekend.
Morris told the club’s official website: “It has been important to meet with the board and discuss the strategy going forward. They need to know what we need in terms of recruitment and the retention of players. They are fully aware of the ideas we have and how we want to play.
“They are also aware of the holes and the gaps we have in the team and the squad. We know that it is going to be a big summer for us in terms of recruitment, regardless of who the manager is.
He added: “We will now look at recruitment from all angles and have the data and knowledge to back that up. That process has already started because we are determined to fill in those gaps. We have three months before the start of next season and there is a lot of work to be done, to make sure those pieces are in place. “
