Ex Palace Boss Holloway Appointed

Ex Palace Boss Holloway Appointed

Millwall have today confirmed that Ian Holloway has been appointed as our new manager following the sacking of Steve Lomas.

Ollie, as he is affectionately known, will take charge immediately as preparations continue for the game against Huddersfield later in the week.

Holloway obviously had a long career as a player, and has spent quite a few years in management, having particular success at Blackpool and Crystal Palace when it came to securing promotion from the Championship into the Premiership.

His time at Palace came to an end with him admitting he had made too many changes to the playing staff there which hadn't helped team spirit, and also that he needed a break from football to recharge himself.

Presumably interview favourite Holloway is definitely ready to get back into the game, and turn our season around.

Speaking to the official site following the appointment, Chairman John Berylson discussed the appointment.

'We are delighted to announce the appointment of Ian Holloway. The fact that we have been able to attract someone of Ian's calibre and track record is testament to the fact that he shares our view of the potential we have to progress as a club and move forward.'

Berylson goes on to say that Holloway has signed a two and a half year contract with us and he believes that on both sides that shows the commitment from all to re-establish ourselves as a competitive club this season, and then to kick on next season towards the top of the division - hopefully.

The chairman also says that whilst the new manager inherits 'an experienced and talented squad that has not been playing to its potential' he will have the backing of the board to strengthen this month as he sees fit.

He ends the interview by saying that a lot of lessons have been learned since the departure of Kenny Jackett, and mistakes - albeit honest - have definitely been made although they were made with the best interests of the club at hear, and he knows there have been some 'harsh words exchanged of late' and of course those on the receiving end have felt the pain of that, but 'now is the time for disunity to stop and for us all to unite behind Ian, his staff and the players as they seek to restore Millwall both on and off the field.'
