RUFC - Randall on his loan move to the Millers
Rotherham United new boy, Mark Randall says that when he leaves the club in January he hopes he`s become a better player.
Speaking to David Beddows of The Advertiser, the twenty-one year old Arsenal midfielder said, 'I went to Arsenal when I was thirteen, coming through the ranks and having a few first team games. But, unfortunately, I haven`t broke through which is why I`m out on loan. I`ve trained with the first team a lot and it`s great to play with some of the best players in the world. To be with people like Cesc Fabregas, who`s won the World Cup and Euros, what more do you want?
Confidently, Mark, who has also had loan spells with Burnley and MK Dons, carried on, 'I definitely have the potential to play in the Premier League but there`s a lot of improvement I need to bring to my game regarding work ethic and the defending side, which is why I`m here, to improve it. I can get on the ball and slow it down when Rotherham are under pressure and I think I can make and score goals. I`ve heard it`s going to be physical in this league but I think I can handle it. It`s a massive jump down from the Arsenal but that`s all part of a loan move and it hits you hard but I`m going to do well and Rotherham is a nice club to be at and I`m happy to get out and be playing first team football.
'At Arsenal Arsene Wenger just let`s you get on with it. It`s a case of when you play a first team game you should already know what you`ve got to do so he doesn`t really say much to you. It`s a big ask to break into the first team but Jack Wiltshire and Kieran Gibbs have done it and both have done really well. I still have hopes at Arsenal but if a club comes in for me and guarantee me playing first team football then I would go.`
