Legend returns

24 June 2013

Coaching role for Chopper

Millwall's all-time leading goalscorer Neil Harris is set to return to the club in a coaching capacity having hung up his boots as a player last week.
New Lions boss Steve Lomas stated: "As soon as I became aware that Neil's playing career was coming to an end I was keen to bring him onto the staff at Millwall once more.
In the same way as I'm looking for players hungry to play for this club who understand its dynamic, the same goes for the coaching staff.
I see Neil in the same position I was when I finished as a player and had the opportunity to get my coaching career underway at Norwich City. I believe he will be a great asset to us and an inspiration to the players, both at first team level and with the development squad."
Chopper commented:"I'm so excited to be coming back to the club where I enjoyed so many happy years as a player. The opportunity to pass on my knowledge and experience to the current generation of Millwall players and start my coaching career at the place I love is something I could only have dreamed of as I contemplated the fact that my playing days were over." 
Lions Player subscribers should look out for the exclusive first interview with Neil Harris on his return to The Den shortly.
