RUFC - Warney wants to 'carry on'

RUFC - Warney wants to 'carry on'

Rotherham United's veteran, Paul Warne says he wants to carry on playing, though, as he is out of contract this summer, whether it be with the Millers or not we will have to wait and see.

Speaking to David Beddows of The Advertiser the thirty-seven year old, whose season has been plagued with injury this year, said, 'My situation this summer is the same as I've had for the last five summers. I'd love to keep playing, but, whether I can or not is a different matter.'

Warney limped off during the game at Torquay in November and it was revealed that he'd broken his leg but he returned on Saturday at Barnet, coming off the bench for the final few minutes.

'I wouldn't say I'm match fit yet,' Warne said, 'but, if I was to get fit, then I think I'm good enough to play at this level and I don't think I'm finished at any stretch but I'm just a stubborn old b******!

'I was enjoying my football before I broke my leg and it just doesn't seem right that I should finish my career off like that.

'I'd like to stay here as a player and, if there was more responsibility, I would take it on board, because, at my age, wherever I was to go, I realise I wouldn't be the first name on the team sheet. Though, I think I should be!

'If I score the winner in the play-off final at Wembley next month then I might consider retiring, but, at the moment, I want to play and if it meant I started ten, came on in ten and was doing things for the lads behind the scenes, then I'd take that.'

Warney said he'd not been idle while he's not been playing, saying, 'I've been training my backside off and swimming like Duncan Goodhew, in fact, I looked like him! I've had no pain in my leg for three weeks which has given me a right boost.

After coming on at Barnet last week he said, 'I only played a few minutes but it felt like ninety! But, it was nice to be back.'

And, it was good to see you back Warney! I was one of the 'doubters' when you came back to the club, but, I'm very happy to say, I've been proved wrong and I, for one, hope you are here for many seasons yet.
