Rotherham United Manager Paul Warne is well known for his tough pre-seasons with the last couple being in Austria and Germany. Of course, due to the coronavirus, this year the pre-season has had to be at home but, by the sounds of it, it hasn’t been any less difficult.

Speaking to the Official Site striker Michael Smith, who has found out that Yorkshire is ‘very, very hilly’ thinks that this year the pre-season has been even tougher.

‘I’m not used to running up and down all the hills,’ the twenty-eight year old said, ‘but we’ve got to grind the pre-season out. The lads are working really hard and all are looking in good shape.’

Smudge can’t wait to get going in the Championship and playing in front of thirty of forty thousand every other week, although nobody yet knows when or even if that is going to be possible.

‘I think we’ve got more than enough to compete next year and I’m looking forward to it.’

Michael has played with the Millers in the Championship after joining Rotherham from Bury in January 2018 and helping them up from League One in the Wembley Play-Off Final. He made forty-six appearances that season in the second tier of English football scoring eight times.
