KEN JACKETT APPOINTED AS MANAGER OF ROTHERHAM UNITED

Ken Jackett has been appointed as manager of Rotherham United in the Sky Bet Championship.

Rotherham United Chairman Tony Stewart said of Jackett's appointment: “It was probably the best interview I have had with somebody since I took over the club,” he told www.themillers.co.uk.

“Kenny was available and we acted swiftly because we knew that he has got the experience, he has managed a great club like Wolves and if you check the stats out his record is superb. 

“We had a good feeling he would be right, then when we sat down to interview him I liked his enthusiasm. We talked about the players, the style of play and he was talking our language – he was talking Rotherham football.

“We had long meetings with him, he spoke with confidence and the Board members who were present were very impressed with what he had to say, and what he could do for Rotherham United.”
