RUFC - 'We'll be our own men'

Rotherham United Caretaker Manager, Andy Liddell says that him and Paul Warne are going to be their own men as they try and wrestle the Millers to automatic promotion from League Two.

Speaking after being in the hot seat for just over a week, Lidds told The Advertiser, 'I`ve played for a lot of managers. Some are shouters and some are arms-round-the-shoulder typed and some are a mixture of the two but Paul and I are going to be our own men because that`s all you can be. If you`re fair and honest to the players then they respect you. If they don`t like what you say to them, then tough.

'Of all the managers I`ve had, I`ve found the ones I`ve worked longest for are probably the ones who are positive and encourage the players, are fair and honest. But, really, all managers and coaches are frustrated players who want to kick every ball for them. All the managers I`ve spoken to say all you get is stress, lack of sleep and aggravation. It`s not a great model for the job but I`m very much a positive person. After the personal circumstances I`ve had away from football it`s taught me that you have got to enjoy living and enjoy what you are doing.

'To be honest, in my early days as a footballer I didn`t think of eventually becoming a manager. But, as you get older I thought if the chance comes I`ll see what it`s like. Well, that chance has come. I don`t waste time and I don`t waste people`s time. Time is precious.`

Personally, I think Lidds has taken to being a manager like a duck to water. His interviews are honest and he seems very relaxed and it`s obvious he won`t stand any nonsense. As a Millers fan for more years than I care to remember I really don`t think we can ask for anymore than that.
