I Put My Belief In Youth- Mark Warburton
Mark Warburton has told Rangers that he wants to base his next project around a core of young players, a streamlined squad and a commitment to playing passing football.
Warburton has detailed his vision of the future at his next club and much of it will chime with an Ibrox board looking at a wholescale restructuring of all aspects of their business and a target set by the new chairman, Dave King, of bringing in 45,000 season ticket holders.
"I strongly believe in youth," said Warburton. "I really believe that you can get young, hungry players who can embrace ideas and you marshal them with one or two senior pros who can really mentor them. That is a nice balance.
"I don't want to come across as arrogant, but I hope very much that the way we played at Brentford last season tells you a lot about Davie and me."People refer to playing the game the right way. That is nonsense."It is about playing the game your way. If you win trophies by being very long and direct, so be it, but I like to have players who can dominate a football, are comfortable in possession and enjoy being in possession."
Warburton insists that having time to construct a squad and be with them throughout the entirety of pre-season is absolutely crucial for any coach and is evidently looking to have his future sorted out sooner rather than later.Warburton has also claimed that he has no demands over the level of football in which he manages next, whether that be the SPFL Championship or the second tier of the English game.
