RUFC - 'Moore - Alfie can't leave it all to Tom'
Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore says that now that striker Tom Pope appears to be back to fitness and in form that he doesn`t want top scorer, Adam Le Fondre to sit back on his laurels.
Yesterday, Tom Pope actually said that he doesn't mind doing the 'spade' work for his strike partner but Ronnie Moore thinks different.
Speaking to Les Payne of The Star, Moore said, 'Alf likes playing besides Popey and Popey enjoys it with him and that`s fine as long as Alf realises the importance of hard work.
'I`ve told Alf the harder he works the more he will score and there is no way I want to see him leaving all the hard work to Tom. Hard work never did Ian Rush any harm and look at his record.
'The current day player can`t just be a Jimmy Greaves because more is demanded all round as a contribution to the team and I think the penny is starting to drop with Alf and when he takes it all on board he`s going to get better.`
