Redfearn: Rotherham have Premier League potential

New Rotherham United manager Neil Redfearn has told Sky Sports News that he has joined a club with real Premier League potential, after being revealed as the clubs new boss.

The 50-year old who was sacked by Leeds in the summer has last week signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Championship side, replacing Steve Evans after three and a half years in charge.

Neil Redfearn told Sky Sports News HQ that he wants to take the club to the next level – the Premier League.

“This is a club that’s capable of going on to the next level – that’s what excites me, and it’s a real challenge. We’ve got some talented boys, we want to open their minds, try and develop them and make them stronger.”

“It’s a tough division to get out of, and I think sometimes it takes a different approach. The club’s had lots of recent success – Steve Evans has been a big part of it and has to take a lot of credit. I’m here to pick up the baton.”

After gaining experience from the role of Academy Director at Leeds United, and being heavily praised after the influx of Leeds academy players coming through such as Sam Byram and Lewis Cook, Rotherham Chairman Tony Stewart was impressed by Redfearns work and added:

“Why we went for Neil is that his CV looks good. He has played at a high level, he was captain and he also has a good youth policy.”

Rotherham United are currently sitting one place above the relegation zone, only time can tell whether new boss Neil Redfearn can show off his ‘CV’ attributes and get the fans at the New York Stadium something to cheer about.
