WELCOME BACK : What Steve Evans’ said at his first interview after leaving Stevenage for Rotherham

Steve Evans stated that he had always hoped to return to Rotherham, and Phil Wallace was aware of his strong love for the Millers.
The now-ex-Stevenage boss surprised m: any by returning to his previous club on Wednesday, but he admitted there was always a sense of unfinished business inside him.

And the call that the Boro chairman dreaded set the wheels in motion rapidly.

“I’m overjoyed,” Evans added. “It has almost happened a few times, but the planets have never really matched right, either from the chairman’s or the board’s perspective.

“More recently, it’s come together in a day or two, all pretty swiftly.

“I’ve come home,” said a few folks I met in town, and my family has used the same words.

Let me clarify Stevenage. They, like the Millers, have an absolutely excellent chairman and board, a superb infrastructure, a smaller football club, but a genuinely good football club [with hopes to play in the Championship

“What I’ve left behind is a pretty good staff and players at the level.

“Everything I can say about Stevenage gets a big tick, but as Phil Wallace knew, when the phone came from Rotherham a couple of days ago, it was always something I spoke so highly of and affectionately of that he knew if the opportunity arose, I would accept.

“I had a two-minute conversation [with Tony Stewart]. The rest took care of himself really soon.”

The bond with the Rotherham chairman was critical to the choice to return to South Yorkshire.

Evans stated: “My friendship with Tony Stewart is well-known in football. We maintained in touch, and it was pretty generic.

“Things, family things.”It was very amazing to be able to sit in front of the chairman a few days ago and speak with him about the potential, a genuine opportunity, to return.

“It’s amazing to be here. My experience here was unusual for me, and I hope to return and win several football matches.

“I still have the passion, as Stevenage supporters would attest. We will definitely compete for promotion next season.”
