RUFC - Coaching not for Warney

Rotherham United midfielder/winger/striker/jack-of-all-trades, Paul Warne has decided that coaching isn`t for him.

Warney is in his second spell with the Millers and was one of the three who stepped into the breach when Mark Robins and John Breckin left the club but was perhaps a little relieved when Ronnie Moore and Jimmy Mullen were appointed. But, the thirty-six year old, is still helping out with training.

'It`s a pain,` Warne told David Beddows of The Advertiser. 'I`d really rather just concentrate on playing. I didn`t sign up here to be warm-up man - I signed to play and that`s what I want. Nothing can beat playing and winning games and I`m not prepared to take that sideways step and turn into a coach. I don`t think it`s for me. Come next summer I`d like to think I`ve another year of playing in me. If I haven`t but the club want me to stay on and work for a year then I`d consider it because like everyone else, I have bills to pay.

'We`ve gone from four or five coaching staff to Ronnie, Jimmy and myself and I do all the warm-ups, the fitness work and play as well and it`s hard. I just enjoy playing football and I don`t think it`s possible to do both.

'At the moment I`m training to be a teacher. I`ve done my degree and I`m doing my teaching degree. '

Speaking about the team Warney carried on, 'We need to get back to winning ways in the league and get the confidence back.

'In the early part of the season I don`t think we were playing any better than we are now but we were winning games because we took our chances. Recently we`ve not been doing that. We battered Hereford and should have won. We battered Bury away in the first half and should have won comfortably. I don`t think we deserved to beat Crewe.

'We aren`t Liverpool of the 80`s and we are going to concede goals but we just need that little bit of luck.'
