Rotherham United's Ian Sharps has told The Advertiser that he's settling into the role as skipper, for the second time with the Millers.
The ex Tranmere player was club captain last season with Pablo Mills being given the skippers armband and Sharps says, 'I was club captain last year and had more responsibility during the week. On matchdays I've always tried to help other lads out no matter how badly I've been playing.
'Part of my job is to tell others they aren't doing their job and they can turn round and say you're not having a good game either. But, I've been happy with my form this year.'
With Manager, Ronnie Moore, being less than complimentary about his defenders of late, he did praise Sharps against Burton last weekend. But the twenty-nine year old was quick to say, 'We defend as a team and conceded two goals of which I am partly responsible. We had four chances to clear the ball before their second goal and we didn't do that. It was a draw that felt like a defeat and now we need to put in a performance at Bradford.'
With the players going off last Saturday to the sound of boo's from the stands, Sharps said, 'I can assure the supporters we were more disappointed than anyone else and the dressing room was very quiet afterwards.'
Manager Moore knows Sharps from his days at Tranmere and was asked recently if he thought the captain wasn't vocal enough to which he replied, 'Modern footballers aren't as vocal as they used to be. Ian is six foot three and he's the leader because we don't have too many 'gobbies'. I would like to see someone with more authority but Ian does it with his performances.'
Personally, I think Ian Sharps is a good captain and I was surprised when Pablo was given the armband last season before Sharpsy.
