RUFC - Coid pleased to be back
Rotherham United Manager, Ronnie Moore was pleased to re-sign defender, Danny Coid from Blackpool for a further months loan and he was put straight into the starting eleven against Burton Albion yesterday, helping the Millers to a four-two win.
Coid himself told Radio Sheffield that he 'pleaded` with Blackpool to let him come back to play for the Millers.
Blackpool really wanted to off-load the twenty-nine year old for three months but, with Rotherham already having had him on loan for two months, only letting him go back early when he got injured, it wasn`t something that could happen.
'I played in a Reserve game earlier this week against a Sunderland under Twelve side I think they were!` Coid said, 'and I got a reality check and begged Blackpool to send me back to Rotherham. I knew that there`d been a few problems over the last few weeks about letting me come here with other issues that`s happened in the past and unfortunately I was suffering because of that. I thought that was out of order because I`d been here for the previous two months but I think the club were trying to get me out for the rest of the season and not just a month. But, with me being out of contract at the end of the season, I think they realised they had to let me go to further my career.
'I missed a few games because of postponements last time I was here and I had a little injury and I still felt that I owed Rotherham a few games. There were a couple of clubs came in for me a couple of weeks ago but I wasn`t fit and I knew Rotherham were still trying to get me. I had to tell Ronnie that I wasn`t fit because he was expecting me to play a game Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday-Tuesday and I`d not even trained once since I`d left here. But, when I was ready to go, Ronnie was still there waiting to take me.`
Danny says that he`s had a lot of sleepless nights knowing that his contract with Blackpool is up at the end of the season and said, 'I`m in the same position as a lot of people wondering where you are going to be next season. It`s not nice but it`s part and parcel of the job. I`ve said many times if there was something here for me then I`d look into signing here depending what division we are in. Obviously, there would be a lot of things to think about because I`d be moving away from home because I don`t fancy leaving my house at seven o`clock every morning! But, I`d like to get settled here for a couple of years and I`d give it everything I`ve got but I`ll just have to wait and see what happens.
'The dressing room is a little bit quieter since I was last here with Kevin Ellison going! The lads are great here and I think we`re in a great position to go up.`
