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

RUFC - Cress 'It's good to be back playing'

Rotherham United defender, Ryan Cresswell admits that he's opinionated and thinks that's why he hadn't been in the team under former Manager, Andy Scott.

Speaking from the heart to Radio Sheffield this evening, the twenty-four year old said it was good to be back in the first team. 'It was good to get the winner the other day at Don Valley but I feel I should have played more this season and that I'd got a lot more to give.'

Born and bred and brought up a Millers fan by his Granddad, Cress said that, after he got over his injury, he was ready to go out on loan and get minutes under his belt to try and get back in the Rotherham side. 'I was ready to leave with a number of clubs coming in for me,' Cress said, 'but then the club wouldn't let me go and, to be honest, they did mess me about a bit. But, that's all forgotten now.

'New gaffer, Steve Evans, and I have talked and he likes what I bring to the table and I think I'm the sort of player he wants. I hope he can improve me as a player and the team as a squad and get promotion next season. The former manager didn't seem to like the fact that I'm opinionated and I think it cost me games this season and he didn't like that I know a lot about Rotherham.'

Cress also had a word to say about goalkeeping coach, Andy Dibble, saying he used to be quiet and just do his job, 'Dibbs has a lot of input now,' said Cress. 'He's very experienced and I think the lads love to hear what he has to say and any criticism is constructive criticism.'

Asked if he thought it was time for someone 'tough' at Rotherham, Cress agreed saying, 'We need people to think 'We've got Rotherham United and we don't want to go there'. And the new gaffer is right when he says we aren't here to make friends, we're here to win games and get success.'

The Radio Sheffield presenters seemed a bit surprised to find out that Cress and the 'former manager' didn't see eye-to-eye - surely it was common knowledge or why hadn't he been playing?
