Exclusive – ‘Right club, wrong time!’ Evans keen to continue journey as Rotherham boss despite Peterborough linksExclusive – ‘Right club, wrong time!’ Evans keen to continue journey as Rotherham boss despite Peterborough links

first_imgSteve Evans has told talkSPORT he wants to “continue the journey” as manager of Rotherham United next season, amid links to the full-time vacancy at Peterborough.Evans has overseen a brilliant run of recent success at the Millers helm, with his side earning successive promotions from League Two to the Championship and yesterday securing a second season in the second tier.Rotherham were in very real danger of the drop after being hit with a points deduction for fielding an illegible player, but Tuesday’s 2-1 victory over Reading saw them beat the drop with one game remaining.The Scottish boss was earlier in the season linked with the job at Peterborough, where he has a family home, following the departure of Darren Ferguson.And while Evans has ruled out leaving his post at Rotherham, he admits he would love to manage the Posh at some point in the future, saying it’s the “right club at the wrong time.”Asked where he’ll be next season, Evans told Drivetime: “I’ll be at Rotherham United next season. I’ve got a contract here and I’ve got a fantastic relationship with the chairman and the family that own the club.“I’ve got no real wishes or desires to be somewhere else and I think last night’s performance and result showed us that the journey has to continue.”Asked if he’d be tempted to leave if the right offer came along, he added: “Well that’s happened on occasion over the past year, but I’m keen to stay and see the job through at Rotherham.“I’ve got a great affinity with Peterborough, I’ve lived there for 20 years and it’s np secret that my in-laws and all my relatives around there are big Peterborough United supporters, and I’ve got great respect for [Posh chairman] Darragh MacAnthony and [director of football] Barry Fry.“But the reality is that I’ve got a lot of unfinished business at Rotherham and I want to see it though.“At some stage in my career in the future I would love to manage the Posh, I’m not going to tell anyone lies, but it’s the right club at the wrong club.”When asked about the club’s ambitions for next season, Evans feels the club can build on their survival, suggesting that could even potentially pave the way for emulating Bournemouth’s rags to riches rise to the Premier League.He added: “I think us surviving in the Championship isn’t me taking the club to its maximum potential. When I joined three years ago I told the chairman that I hand on heart believed we’d be in the Championship and stay there for a second season.“I don’t think people thought that was possible, but now that we’ve completed our first season I think we can take our aims and ambitions a little bit higher.“If anybody wanted inspiration, just look at Eddie Howe and what he’s achieved at Bournemouth…”Listen to Drivetime’s full interview with Rotherham United manager Steve Evans above!last_img read more
