STEVE Lomas says he is looking forward to an ‘exciting challenge’ as he took over the reins at Millwall.
“This is a really exciting challenge for me and I can’t wait to get stuck into it,” said the Coleraine man following a successful 18-month spell with St Johnstone in the Scottish Premier League.
“I know Millwall well as a club. It has a great set up and passionate loyal fans who, if we can get them on our side, particularly at The Den, will be a real asset to us.
“Millwall is a family club, a working class club whose fans hold it very dear to their hearts. I’ve already been asked, what’s an ex-West Ham man doing managing them, then?
“The answer is that I was a council estate kid, I love a challenge, I like hard work and I understand the fans who work hard all week and come to see Millwall on a Saturday expecting to see their team play with pride and passion.
“I am grateful for the responsibility of helping deliver that for them. For those who have their doubts, it is up to me to show by my actions, and more importantly, by our results, that they can believe in me.”
