MILLWALL are poised to expand their coaching staff this summer in a bid to make the club more professional.
Chief executive Andy Ambler has confirmed that an U21 manager to oversee the Lions' development squad and additional scouts are high on his priority list.
But he insists that Kenny Jackett's old backroom staff, namely assistant manager Joe Gallen, first team coach Tim Breacker, goalkeeping coach Kevin Pressman and chief scout Jamie Johnson, all have futures in south London.
"We do want to build on our coaching staff," Ambler said. "Joe, Tim and Kevin are all part of our team at the moment and the new manager coming in will have to evaluate what he wants going forward. But I do think we need to add to that because we've been a bit thin.
"There's definitely scope to get an U21 coach in, because we haven't really set things up in the right way to allow Scott Fitzgerald to concentrate more on running the academy. That definitely needs looking at.
"Over the last 12 months, one area of criticism has been recruitment. That's not to criticise Jamie, but that's another area we need to strengthen. We feel the new manager needs to focus closely on recruitment and implement an improved system for bringing players in."
