RUFC - Brogan 'play me or lose me'

RUFC - Brogan 'play me or lose me'

Rotherham United defender, Stephen Brogan has given an ultimatum to Manager, Ronnie Moore saying 'either give me a chance or I move on.'

After suffering a broken leg, which kept him out of the side for eighteen months, the twenty-one year old's opportunities in the first team have been few and far between.

Speaking to David Beddows of The Advertiser, Paddy said, 'I don't want my career to fizzle out, especially at my age. And, if it means I've got to leave in order to play then it's something I will have to consider. It's the last thing I'd want but you have to be open-minded in football.'

Paddy came through the Youth Academy with the Millers, breaking into the first team towards the end of the 2006/07 season and he was often voted Man of the Match.

Ronnie Moore claims that since Brogan's injury, he hasn't been able to do the box-to-box job but the player disputes that saying, 'That's his opinion. I think I can get up and down like I did before. Maybe, if I get the chance, I will have to show him. I'm fit and can play left-back, left-wing and central midfield.

'I had a couple of starts and thought I was back but then I had a poor game at Luton and got dropped. And now I seem to be out of favour again and it's frustrating not being involved.

'Everyone knows that when I play I give one hundred per cent and I just want to get back in the team and get promoted. By the end of the season I want to be starting matches again.

'All I can do is keep working hard in training and play as well as I can in the reserves and put it to the gaffer that I'm capable of doing the job he wants me to do in the team.

'I had eighteen months of sitting in the stands watching when I was injured and sitting watching in the stands when you're fit is horrible.'
