RUFC - Robins on being a manager

Rotherham United manager, Mark Robins, told Radio Sheffield that he is really enjoying being a manager.

'It's nothing like being a player but I'm enjoying it,' Robins said. 'As a player you focus on yourself, make sure you are keeping fit and trying to get or stay in the team. As a manager you have to keep the whole thing ticking over.

'We've been on a decent run and I'm happy but it's early days and we have to maintain our standards.

'I've had no nasty shocks and it's everything I thought it would be and more and I really enjoy the day to day running of the club and the contact with the players and dealing with the media.

'But, you do have to make time for yourself and your family. You do have to try and learn to switch off and not let it encroach in your private life. But, when I'm sat at home I do find myself planning for the future and going over things. It is a time consuming job - a twenty-four/seven job.

'It's been a big learning curve. I had to practically build a squad from scratch and bring in an assistant manager.

'And, for a first job it's been a big one.'

He's made a 'team' not just good players.
