Nigel Adkins’ first interview as interim manager

Nigel Adkins has underscored the significance of togetherness in his inaugural interview as Interim Manager of Tranmere Rovers.

The ex-Southampton and Sheffield United boss has addressed the public for the first time since assuming the Club’s temporary managerial position.

“We’re in a position we don’t want to be, I think that’s clear,” said Adkins. “We’ve got to address that and do something about it.” 

“Today is the first day of that happening. Everybody has to come together and pull in the same direction. It’s not going to be easy; this is a long project that we’ve got to get right. Everyone has to work hard for each other to make that happen. 

“We’ve got to extract every ounce of potential out of the players. So how can we help them? Everybody coming together, so they can go out and perform and give the best for Tranmere Rovers Football Club.

“The experience I’ve had over the years, working at different levels, I’ve had all the different roles. The big thing I’ve noticed here is a lot of people care, I’m a Tranmere supporter, many people here are, and it’s hurting at the moment. But we have to have that resilience to say ‘start again’

“I was at Colchester. I was as frustrated as anybody because things aren’t going our way, but we have to pull together. All those making the journey to Crawley on Saturday, we really appreciate your effort and the support you’ve got.”
