Rotherham United manager Neil Warnock could be set for an extended stay in South Yorkshire, after revealing he is definitely going to stay in management next term.
Speaking to the Sheffield Star, following Saturday’s goalless draw with Nottingham Forest, Warnock revealed his is set for talks with Chairman Tony Stewart in May.
It was initially believed Warnock was only going to stay until the end of the season, after it was revealed that his wife was suffering from serious illness. However, after Warnock revealed she has given him the blessing to continue, he looks set to discuss his future at the end of the season.
“I’ve spoken to the chairman and we’ve agreed that we’ll get together and talk about it in May.” said Warnock
“I had no intention of coming here. It was too far. No disrespect to Rotherham, I didn’t think I could do much for them,” Warnock added.
“But I went up for the QPR game and was made so welcome. It was an amazing afternoon for me. I remember saying to the chairman, ‘If I can help you, just give me a ring. ‘I never thought I’d end up being his manager.”
The former Sheffield United manager has led the Millers to a remarkable run of form which has included 3 draws and 5 wins in 8 games, leading them to within only 1 point of securing safety in their next game.
It is an incredible turnaround for the club, who looked dead and buried before he took over, following Neil Redfearn’s departure.
Warnock added: “Talking to Sharon at home, she thinks it’s a great idea. She’s very positive at the minute. I have got that little glint in my eye again now. I’m definitely going to manage next season.”
It looks like good news for Millers fans following these quotes, and they will be keen for the Chairman to tie up a deal for Warnock before someone else potentially tries to steal in with a counter punch.
