'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Mullen Delighted to be Working with Moore

Rotherham United's number two, Jimmy Mullen told The Advertiser that he is delighted to be working alongside Ronnie Moore, even if it did take a bit longer than he first expected.

Moore and Mullen were supposed to be joining forces when Ronnie was in charge at Tranmere Rovers. But, before that could happen, Moore was surprisingly sacked by Rovers.

'Ronnie and I go back a long time,' Mullen said. 'He is very passionate about his football with his record last time he was here being first class and I am more than delighted to be working with him again. He wants to win and he was the same when he was a player, whether it be a match or a five-a-side, which is similar to myself.

'It's many years since I was here as captain and it was one of my happiest years ever in football - can you believe twenty-nine years have gone? To be involved with this club again is a dream to me.'

As a player, Jimmy joined the Millers from neighbours Sheffield Wednesday and captained the side to the Division Three title in the 1981/82 season. After leaving the Millers he went on to play for Cardiff City and Newport County.

He was assistant manager to another ex-Miller, Ian Porterfield, at Aberdeen before taking on the manager's role at Blackpool. Between 1991 and 1996 he was manager at Burnley and had a season as boss of Irish club Sligo Rovers. His last management spell was with Walsall, first becoming caretaker manager in April 2008 before taking up the reigns permanently a month later, though his job only lasted until January this year.
