Clarke Happy To Not Be Mr Nice

Clarke Happy To Not Be Mr Nice

Steve Clarke has said he is ready to be ruthless, and not Mr Nice, as he prepares for pre season and what he hopes will be a successful first campaign.

Speaking to wba.co.uk the 48 year old said he was looking forward to the additional challenges that come with being the head honcho, and they won't faze him.

'I think I will need to be a bit more selfish now, I'll have to be clear with my ideas. I will also have to be more ruthless. When you're the assistant, you can be nice to almost everybody. That's something I'll have to deal with, but it's something I'm comfortable with and ready for.'

Clarke continued to talk about his philosophy in football, and the way he will have us playing under his stewardship.

'I think my philosophy at any team I've coached has always been to try and get the ball down and play good football. You want to entertain the public as much as you can, so if we can add some really good attacking football to the solid defence we already have, that would be an ideal scenario.'

Maybe a bit fluid in attack than under Hodgson, but you don't see our overall style changing much from those brief words.

Clarke also adds that he's spoken to 95% of the players for a simple introduction, but he didn't want to overly interupt their holidays, once everybody returns for pre season training the work can begin.
