Former Millwall Coach Keen To Return To Championship Outfit

Former Millwall first-team coach and Watford legend Paul Robinson would love to return to Vicarage Road in a coaching capacity, having left The Den at the start of November.

Robinson was called up to Gary Rowett’s backroom staff two years ago, having worked with the head coach at Birmingham City during his playing days at St. Andrew’s.

A few weeks back, Rowett was relieved of his duties with the Lions after a dismal run of form in the Championship but Robinson was kept on as part of interim manager Adam Barrett’s coaching staff while the board found a new man to lead the team forward.

Eventually, the hierarchy decided to take a chance on 33-year-old Joe Edwards but his appointment caused Robinson to leave his post, as the new boss wanted to bring his own staff to the club.

Right now, the former Bolton Wanderers and West Bromwich Albion defender is out of work but has admitted to being open to a return to Watford, his boyhood club, as a coach in the near future.

Speaking on the Second Tier Podcast, the 44-year-old said [quotes via Football League World]:

“Yeah, it’s my club, I’d still love to go back now in a coaching capacity.

“I’d love to go back and finish where I started as a player, so yeah, that would be nice.

“It’s a great club, it is a great club, now it’s in a rebuild phase again by the looks of it, I hope there’s stability there and I hope the club can move forward and one day hopefully I’d like to be a part of that.”

Writer’s View
Even if Watford manager Valerien Ismael is happy with the coaches he has on his own team, the club could still pull off a master-stroke by bringing Robinson back to the academy to work with the next generation of players.
Robinson is an excellent coach and could be a wonderful asset to the Hornets as he knows the club inside out and what it takes to make it at Vicarage Road.
