Full-time Frampton is a big influence, says Millwall manager

NEIL Harris has hailed Andy Frampton’s influence in the dressing room.

Frampton played for Millwall from 2007 to 2011 and went on to spells with Gillingham and AFC Wimbledon where he finished his playing career in the summer.

He re-joined the Lions last June as a development coach and recently took his place on the bench alongside manager Harris and his Dave Livermore.

Frampton played alongside Harris when Millwall last won promotion from League One in 2010, and the Lions boss believes the 36-year-old will be a valuable asset in inspiring the same spirit in the current group.

Harris said: “Framps is now full-time with us and is part of the coaching set-up with the first team.

“He adds something different to myself and Livers on the training ground and in the dressing room.

“He’s a man with vast experience at The Den. He’s a great character, a really good leader and really well respected within the dressing room.

“He brings another option, another set of eyes and ears. He brings great mental strength and is a strong voice in the dressing room.

“He has been bedding in since joining us. He had other commitments that had been ongoing, but they have been concluded now.”

    I'd take anyone on here or any supporter and put that person in the dressing room. That way, they could tell all and sundry that the attack needs a major overhaul-as it has for the last three years-and we need professional footballers to be able to play more than once a week if necessary without a dying swan routine.
    I'd give most of them a kick up the a*** as they leave the dressing room and run onto the pitch to repeat if they bottle it on saturday.
