Rotherham United Manager, Andy Scott said that he doesn't just want to work with the football club he wants to work with the community of Rotherham as well.
Speaking to The Advertiser on his first day training with the squad, Andy said, 'I don't want to be the Manager of the first team, I want to be the Manager of the football club and I want to bring it all together so we are all pushing together because then you are a stronger unit. I want to be involved with everything including the community and I want to be involved commercially including how the new stadium is going to benefit me as the Manager of the football club. I want to be involved in the youth set up and the reserves as well as the first team and everyone else at the football club on and off the pitch. I'm the focal point of this football club and I want to make sure that I lead by example and show everyone exactly what standards are expected of someone who is involved with Rotherham United.
'I know a lot about the squad. I had a meeting with Andy Liddell and Paul Warne yesterday (Wednesday) and I've done my research. Every club that was looking for a manager I did a portfolio of the club, the players and recent form and, for me, that's the minimum you can do as a manage who is out of work looking for a job.
'I was very successful at my time with Brentford and I believe I can only be more successful here with the opportunity I've been given.
'The vision is to take this club and miximise the opportunities and the facilites. It's not so long ago that it was in the Championship and the way it's structured it is all set to be up there again.
'I think if we get fifteen points then we will be in the play-offs. If we get the fifteen points and aren't in the play-offs I'll be extremely surprised because over the last few years an average of seventy-two points gets you into the play-offs. That's four wins and we've got five games left so we can do it but we have to start on Saturday. There's no time for assessing things, I've got to come in and make an impact and try to get our first win under our belt and go from there. If we get that first win then it will give us momentum and confidence for a second win and if we don't then I think we'll be right out of it.
'I like to have a team who are committed, energetic, have pace and create chances, a team who can put crosses in and have shots and who can make other teams make mistakes. I want the players to be comfortable on the ball and to be comfortable with the ball in the right areas. But, as long as they are positive in everything they do I won't criticise. I've got a way of doing things and over the next three weeks I'll try and drum that into them. But, certainly next year, hopefully I can bring some players in and work with the players we've got here, to be a side who is relentless in it's pursuit of winning three points. And I want them to be exciting to watch and create a lot of chances and show the fans that they will give one hundred per cent. They will make mistakes because players at this level do make mistakes but they are honest mistakes.'
