After a whirlwind week, U’s interim boss, Ross Embleton, had a chance to speak ahead of our game against Northampton.
The interim coach has spoken about how he’s going to impose himself in the side but doesn’t want to change too much, considering that this is a strange situation, and no one has been sacked.
Embleton has coaching experience and has mentioned that he enjoys coaching and working with the players and how he feels that as an employee of the club he will do whatever job they need him to do.
“Always a little bit surreal when I do it now, some day’s I’ll wake up and not know where my football boots are because I don’t have to use them that much anymore, I enjoy coaching, I enjoy working with the players when I am out there so it’s a good opportunity to do that and at the same time as an employee at the club, whatever job I’m asked to do I will step in and do it to the best of my ability to make sure we’re on the right pathway.
“I think it’s important that we have continuity and I’m sure you’ve interviewed managers before and I’m not going to sit here and tell you all the secrets, because there will be a manager and an analyst listening to what I’m saying at the moment sitting in Northampton somewhere so I think it’s important to keep some continuity in what we’re doing, because it’s not been broken in anyway. Sometimes you’re sitting in this chair picking up the pieces but that’s not the case at the moment, it’s about trying to continue the momentum and the good work that’s been done so at the same time it’s important to impose some of what I’m doing.”
