Miller Hungrier Than Ever

2 August 2018

Oldham Athletic’s latest signing can’t wait to get back playing football.

After previously having a break from football, he can’t wait to get the season started.

“It’s been good to get pre-season under my belt and it feels good to be back in the game,” he explained.

“It was just the perfect time for me to come back, I’ve been really missing them games.

“Especially the last couple months, things like the World Cup make you miss it so much.

“That year out it was nice to reflect on the things that I wanted and probably made me hungrier than I’ve ever been.”

The 31-year-old started his career at Manchester City where he worked with manager Frankie Bunn in the academy.

Miller says Bunn was the main influence in joining Oldham.

“It was perfect timing,” he said.

“I’ve known Frankie Bunn and Andy Rhodes for so many years, and as soon as we spoke it was like the stars aligning.

“Frank is a great coach and like I mentioned I’ve known him such a long time.

“He’s got that ‘X-Factor’ as a coach and as a manager, which is to get the best out of his players.

“That’s a great quality in itself, and he knows how to get the best out of me. So when he called, it was just an easy and simple decision.”

Over the years he has amassed plenty of experience at Championship level, winning the division with West Bromwich Albion in 2007/08 and 2010/11.

This time out he’ll be representing Latics in League Two and he expects success.

“I think with the team we’ve got, and the coaching staff we’ve got, plus the facilities we’ve got here; I think it’s got to be real positive,” he commented.

“The team spirit has been great, and we look super fit as a team, and I’m super excited.”
