Mike Pollitt talks to

New Rotherham United goalkeeper coach Mike Pollitt says he is thrilled to be back after agreeing a deal to be the club's goalkeeper coach.

Pollitt replaces the outgoing Andy Dibble at the AESSEAL New York Stadium, following two successful playing spells at the club in the late 90s and early 00s.

A former team mate of current interim boss Paul Warne, Pollitt revealed he cannot wait to get back involved after a short break following his departure from Wigan Athletic.

"After I left Wigan I was really pleased to get the call from Warney about coming back here," Pollitt told

"It is going to be a tough challenge with the situation we are in, but I am really forward to it."

Warne isn't the only familiar face at the club for the former number one, with his former assistant manager John Breckin and physio Denis Circuit currently on the staff.

Pollitt admitted he is looking forward to seeing old friends, and to be back in a Rotherham dugout again as he prepares to make his return for Saturday's home clash with Norwich City.

"It will be great to see some old faces, the likes of John Breckin and Denis Circuit who are still here from back in the day," he confirmed.

"There are others that are still involved, so it is fantastic to see some old faces. I came back over Christmas as a guest for the game against Wigan, I got a good reception from the fans, so I really enjoyed the experience and I'm delighted now to be back as a member of the staff.

"It is a different setup from the days when I left, when the club was still at Millmoor. It is totally new surroundings, it is unfortunate with the season we have had so far, but you can see that the Chairman is really trying to take the club forward and it is great to now be part of that."
