RUFC - Evans 'Daniel will grace this stadium'

RUFC - Evans 'Daniel will grace this stadium'

Rotherham United manager, Steve Evans made his first signing for the Millers today when Daniel Nardiello agreed to sign from Exeter City and Evans says he is confident that he is a player who will grace the new stadium.

Speaking after the deal was done, the Millers boss said, 'It was a long night but we got there in the end and we have to say a big 'thank you' to the Chairman, Tony Stewart and to Paul Douglas who is working all hours for us.'

It isn't the first time Steve Evans has had his eye on the twenty-nine year old striker, having twice tried to sign him when he was Manager of Crawley, Evans said, 'Daniel is a gifted young man and I'm really excited that I'm going to work with such a talented boy. He's got a fantastic pedigree and was at Manchester United, although he didn't play at first team level, he had a fantastic spell at Blackpool and at Barnsley. He can get goals and the fans will love him. He's got the work ethic inside of him and is full of enthusiasm and he still wants to win things and be successful so he's come to the right club. I had to watch him make some phone calls and tell League One managers that he'd chosen to go somewhere else and that's great because a number of those managers are very good judges of players and friends of mine.

'Every player we sign must have the hunger and this boy will get goals. He celebrates like every goal is his first or his last, he's got magical feet round about the box and can take people on for fun. I'm confident that he is a player who will grace the stadium.

'I saw Daniel a few times last season but playing mainly on the left but, to be honest, I see him as a striker. If I've got two better strikers than him on the day and Daniel Nardiello is on the left then we will be doing OK!

'Daniel more or less agreed to come on board about a week ago but he wanted to go back to Exeter and speak to Paul Tisdale, who, in my opinion is a very good manager, and I think that's a real respect from a player to a manager. Paul wanted Daniel to stay there but he wanted to be based in the Northern part of the country so that had an impact as well.'

Asked what he thought made Daniel sign for the Millers, Evans said, 'I think the stadium is a big attraction along with the training facilities and the management track record of success and what we are going to try and do in League Two. There were some League One clubs and some of the bigger clubs who will start next year in League Two who have spoken to Daniel and him and his father came across as very professional because it wasn't just about the terms it was about the whole package like the fan base and how we played. At the stadium we took him to the top of the home end and asked him what it would be like for the thousands in there to be singing his name and he said it lifted the hairs on his neck.'
