RUFC - Pabs 'I'l take it in my stride'
Rotherham United's new Captain, Pablo Mills, wasn't really surprised that Manager, Mark Robins, asked him to wear the armband this season.
'I did it before for Rotherham a couple of seasons ago,' the twenty-four year old told The Advertiser. 'I'll just take it in my stride and get on with it.'
A year ago Mills upset Mark Robins when he came back to pre-season training overweight and he was sent out on loan to Crawley Town to get fit and, after speaking with a club official for Crawley, I know they were sad he wasn't stopping with them when his loan period finished.
Mills carried on, 'In a situation like that you can go one of two ways - down or up. I would like to think that I've got myself sorted out now and the manager is repaying me.'
He was asked what sort of captain he thinks he will make and he said, 'I'd like to think I'm the sort who can lead by example and I do talk a lot on the field. I've played centre-half and midfield while I've been at Rotherham but whichever I play won't make a difference to the way I am as skipper although you probably see the ball a bit more in midfield.
'With the points penalty it is a case of being strong and sticking together as a squad and getting through it.'
