RUFC - Evans Pleased With Who He's Got

Rotherham United Manager Steve Evans hasn't held back since the Millers won promotion at Wembley in May with eleven new faces being brought into the squad since then.

Speaking to Rob Staton of Radio Sheffield the Millers Boss said he felt it was massively important to fetch in players who had already had experience in the Championship.

'We took the squad down to just twelve players at the end of last season mostly because we had some very talented loan players who returned to their parent clubs and we let three or four lads move on. So it was imported that we`ve recruited every one of the players that we have who have hunger and desire and probably a bit to prove. But we`ve also got some men with credentials of being at a good level in the Championship. And I think it was important that we brought competition into certain areas.

'When you look at the likes of Paul Green, Frazer Richardson and Broadfoot with a UEFA Cup Final in his bag then you see we`ve got some real experience behind us who also have a hunger, desire and a real athleticism about their playing which was imported to Rotherham United.`

Saying that there are a couple of players he`s took a bit of a gamble on, the Gaffer said, 'I look at Febian Brandy and If it was ability then he`d have been the first name on the team sheet for Nigel Clough at Sheffield United last season but he didn't have the attitude that satisfied Nigel and if he doesn`t have the attitude that satisfies Steve Evans then he won`t be around very long.

'But it`s fair to say that we`ve certainly added some quality to what we already had.`

Asked if there were any more likely to come in, Steve said, 'We have got a couple of offers out there. We are very close to being ready with the quality and terms of but if you ask me now, then I`d say we were two players short. We are delighted with what we`ve done and we are in a good position.

'The Championship is new to most of us with the exception of Paul Warne and Paul Douglas so it`s a fantastic challenge for the rest of us and one we look to embrace.`
