RUFC - Kari 'There's More In My Locker'

RUFC - Kari 'There's More In My Locker'

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans has always said that if Kari Arnason is fit and/or available he will play.

I think when the Icelandic International joined the Millers from Aberdeen in the summer a lot of people started sitting up and taking a look at what was happening at the New York Stadium, including a lot of Millers fans! I mean, let`s be honest, most, though not all, of the players signed under Andy Scott were bog standard and none of them made you think 'wow` . Kari was probably more of a 'catch` for Steve Evans after he went on record in May saying he wanted to stay at the Pittodrie Stadium beyond his contract - though, I think I speak for most Millers, we`re glad he didn`t!

Since moving South of the border the thirty year old has made thirteen appearances, the majority being for Rotherham although he`s also played for his country in Iceland and Albania in the World Cup qualifiers which has meant that he`s been switching from one kind of style of football to another although he told David Beddows of The Advertiser that he`s getting used to it.

He also told the local newspaper that there is 'more to come` from him saying, 'Playing for Iceland is a little less hectic. It`s technical football where people try to keep the ball for as long as possible. It is black and white whereas League Two is a very hard league to play in.

'My form is alright but I`ve got a lot more in the locker. When I`ve been here and then playing away with Iceland you don`t get that momentum but now I`m going to get a few games on the bounce and that will help. I`ve a lot more to give and I hope I can show that in the coming games.`

Kari has been playing central defence for both Iceland and Rotherham although he has now moved to midfield for the Millers which, the former Plymouth player says is different. 'I started at centre-half here which is where I play for Iceland then, all of a sudden, I`m pushed to midfield, so it`s kind of tough to adapt. But, good players do this and I hope I do as well.`

To be honest, if I was manager, I`d let Kari pick where he wanted to play and put the rest of the team around him!

Millers Suffer Five-Nil Loss

Rotherham United are still looking for their first win on the road after getting a five-nil drubbing this afternoon in South Wales by Cardiff City.

After a scrappy opening to the game the first action of the half on eleven minutes saw the hosts take the lead when Millers' 'keeper Richard O'Donnell could do nothing to stop a superb curling shot by Kadeem Harris hit the back of the net. Minutes later a ball into the box found Sean Morrison but as he rose to head the ball he clattered into O
