Millwall boss: Jackett's Wolves are an example to follow

THE rebuilding job performed by Kenny Jackett at Wolves is a good example for Millwall to follow as they prepare for League One, says Neil Harris.

Jackett took charge at Molineux two summers ago after Wolves were relegated to the third tier and led them to the title in his first season.

Not only did the former Lions boss win promotion at the first attempt, he completely overhauled the squad and bedded in new signings in the process.

Wolves were comfortable 4-2 winners over Millwall on the final day of the season, with the strength and speed throughout their team catching the eye.

And Harris said: "Wolves are a good model. What they had last year in League One, how they played and what they achieved has now taken them to the next level.

"And based on Saturday, Kenny can take them to the next level again next year.

"We definitely have to use Wolves as an example. You have to look at the pace, power and size in their team and say that we want to be like that.

"You have to have individual players with ability as well, but there is certainly an example for us to follow there."

Jackett was asked on Saturday what advice he would give Harris about rebuilding a club after relegation, and said: "He won't need me to advise him.

"He'll be good enough to make the right decisions with a good board of directors behind him, which he has.

"I feel it's a really good appointment because Neil has been working away inside the club over the past couple of seasons.

"Nobody will know more about leading Millwall than Neil Harris so I really do think it's an excellent appointment."

    Wolves are historically a big club, they regularly get crowds nearly double ours, so although the sentiments may be valid Neil it was alot easier for Wolves to rebuild than it will be for us, just look at who they signed and the money they cost plus the wages they are on. Afobe, etc etc etc.
    So no you can't use Wolves as an example of how to do it unless you have similar funds available so dream on it won't happen. Poundland here we come.
