John Berylson believes Neil Harris has the know-how to make a successful Millwall side

29 April 2015

Millwall chairman John Berylson believes the club's new management team have what it takes to build a successful Lions side.

Neil Harris' appointment as permanent boss was confirmed on Wednesday, with David Livermore as his assistant.

The manager, who is the Lions' all-time record goalscorer, has been in charge on an interim basis since the departure of Ian Holloway in March.

The club have since suffered relegation to Sky Bet League 1, which was confirmed on Tuesday after Rotherham United's win against Reading, but Berylson believes the right men are at the helm.

On the club's official website, he said: “When Neil took over we were already in a very difficult position, and the fact that we came so close to taking the season to the last game says a great deal about the job that he and David have done over the past few weeks.

"I have been greatly impressed with the professionalism and attention to detail Neil has demonstrated since becoming manager and he has undoubtedly inspired the players to produce some performances of real character.

"After five seasons in the Championship, relegation is undoubtedly a massive disappointment to us all. However, we started re-structuring back in February with the addition of a Head of Recruitment.

"Coupled with our flourishing Academy, which under Scott Fitzgerald has begun to produce good young players, there is a real sense of optimism going forward.

"I am fully commited to the future and know that our team is in the hands of men well versed in what it takes to make a successful Millwall side."
