RUFC - Broughton 'Man U boss made me play better'

RUFC - Broughton 'Man U boss made me play better'

Rotherham United striker, Drewe Broughton, thinks that Manchester United's Sir Alex Fergusson has had an influence on making him a better player - even though he has never played under him!

After scoring his eighth goal for the Millers on Tuesday at the Deva Stadium, the thirty year old told The Advertiser, that he's benefited by two men who were schooled at Old Trafford - Paul Ince, at MK Dons and Mark Robins here at Rotherham. 'Those guys are just winners, it's just the way it is,' Broughton said. 'Although they both have their different styles, they both set high standards. Ince was combative and aggressive and I think the manager here is more of a thinker. But, the core thing is, they are both winners and I'm lucky to have worked with both of them.'

Drewe has been booked a few times this season and seen red on one occasion and says that he thinks his reputation of being able 'to dish it out' goes before him. 'I got nothing from the referee at Lincoln and it was the same last Saturday against Brentford. But, I learned some time ago that you can't fight the system. I used to fight and scrap against it for years but now I just get on with it.

'In many ways when I came here it was on the back foot. The season had just started and the manager's budget had gone. I was given a contract to the end of the season and I'd like to stay. There's a real buzz about the place with everything being geared to go in the right direction. We've talked about a couple of things contract-wise but there's still a lot of football to be played so we'll get on with that and see what happens.

'This season is getting on for being my most successful in terms of starts and if I can get into double figures goal wise then it will finish on a good note.

'The most important thing is that I'm enjoying my football.'
