Rotherham United Manager Neil Warnock says that Leeds United are the biggest club he’s ever managed.

Saying he didn’t want to be disrespectful to the other clubs he’s been in charge of the Millers Boss told Radio Sheffield, ‘Regarding the place itself, the training facilities and the catchment area Leeds is the biggest club I’ve managed.

‘I went in at Leeds at a difficult time really and I managed to steady the ship. My disappointment was that I thought we were building a decent team and then we sold Snodgrass. I thought I was going to get most of the money to re-invest but then within a few days was told I wasn’t. I thought if we’d have invested right at that time and I could have shopped at Harrods instead of Woolworth I could have got Leeds up. Over all, in the circumstances I think I did a cracking job.’

Asked if he was going to enjoy the part of the ‘pantomime’ with Steve Evans coming back to the New York Stadium, Neil said, ‘With the dugouts so far apart I don’t think it will matter. I think it’s just the press who will make a meal of it but, at the end of the day, it’s what the players on the field do which is what I’ll be concentrating on.

‘The Leeds fans will fill the away end tomorrow which they did when I was manager of QPR earlier this season when they were vociferous. The noise generated which lifted the home fans which was a fabulous atmosphere. And I’m sure the same will happen here where I’m sure I’ll get a few adjectives aimed at me which I’ll enjoy! And it’s a part of football I actually miss when I’m sat at home on my tractor. I like smiling whether you love me or hate me and I think fans enjoy the situation when I’m around and I’m not going to change now.’
