Former defender reveals his excitement about becoming a development coach for The Lions
Andy Frampton says he is "over the moon" to be returning to Millwall as a development coach - one of four key appointments announced on Tuesday.
The 35-year-old played for Millwall between 2007 and 2011 - forming part of the side that won promotion to the Championship in 2010 - but called time on his playing career earlier this year after an injury-hit spell with AFC Wimbledon.
Instead of taking a rest from the game, however, Frampton has quickly made the jump into coaching, and will work with Millwall's senior squad as well as the club's various Academy sides.
"I'm over the moon that I have the opportunity to get into coaching, but certainly to be back at Millwall as well," he told millwallfc.co.uk.
"It's a real positive thing for me.
"Hopefully my experiences at the club, which range from being pretty poor to very good, means I know what it takes to put on a Millwall shirt.
"Hopefully that will reflect in the way I coach the lads because I can give them an account of what it takes."
Frampton, who also played for Brentford and Gillingham amongst others across a 15-year playing career, is especially keen to start work alongside first team manager and former colleague Neil Harris.
"It's very exciting," he said. "Neil did a great job at the end of last season, but unfortunately it wasn't quite enough to keep Millwall in the Championship.
"The opportunity to work with Neil this forthcoming season is something that excites me greatly. It certainly looks like he is building a good team to take the club forward into the future."
