STEVE CLARIDGE TAKES OVER AT THE DEN

Millwall have appointed former player Steve Claridge as their new manager. He takes over from Dennis Wise, who resigned on the final day of last season. The 39-year-old, who played 101 games for the club in two spells between 2001 and 2003, was understandably thrilled with the opportunity saying;

"I'm thrilled to be given the opportunity to manage Millwall. I thoroughly enjoyed my time here previously and this is a challenge I just couldn't turn down. Everyone at Millwall knows me and knows what to expect and I am now looking forward to getting started."

Lions chairman Jeff Burnige also told the club's official website:

"I am delighted with the appointment. Steve Claridge fulfils the criteria I was looking for in a manager and indeed he is the only candidate to whom I offered the job. The clinching factor for me, however, is that he is the person with the burning desire to manage Millwall. Steve has a passion for this club that supporters can identify with."

Burnige also spoke to former Derby boss George Burley and ex-Cardiff boss Lennie Lawrence with a view to taking over the hot seat, but he opted for Claridge explaining that

“He has previous managerial experience and a wide knowledge of this division.”
