'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Stewart 'we have the means'


Rotherham United Chairman, Tony Stewart says he feels comfortable bringing in Steve Evans as manager, as he is someone who has not been out of football and has managed in League Two.

Having sacked two managers in his short time with the Millers, Mr Stewart told Radio Sheffield that he now thought, as a Board, they were now maturing, saying 'We`ve learnt a lot but still have a lot to learn.

'Steve is a very serious individual who takes his football very seriously and I`ve told him that our ambition is obviously to get as high as we can. All I want him to do is replicate what he`s been doing at Crawley with Rotherham.

'In the past incrementally as time`s gone on in the season, we`ve not improved our ability and our standard. We`ve set off like a cannon ball and then after Christmas we`ve slowed down and the performances have been lacking.

'When we get to September, I`m looking for results and when we get to January I`m looking for better results. If we can improve our football it will give me a lot of relief and I don`t think we will be far off the top position.

'We live within our means at Rotherham and we`ve got the means. With all my managers, in League Two, I`ve made them competitive and we are in the top four with regard to spending. We`ve got ten players out of contract, which, in itself, is quite a lot of money. You can`t be optimistic with your head and pessimistic with your pocket. We`re moving into the new stadium where we have revenue strings that we haven`t got at Don Valley which will be more supportive towards us.`
