ROWETT SECURES SHARPS
HE’s not loud and he’s not quick but Burton boss Gary Rowett insists he wouldn’t swap Ian Sharps for anyone after the captain extended his contract at the Pirelli Stadium.
The 33-year-old defender has signed on for another year and Rowett believes he is getting better with age.
“He isn’t lightning quick and he isn’t a massive shouter but what he does is go about his job and does it with a real sense of responsibility,” said Rowett.
“His reading of the game is key. He gets in good positions and you rarely see him out of position.The other thing people don’t always see is how comfortable he is on the ball.”
