Abbott reveals Miller talks
Greg Abbott admits he has spoken to Lee Miller about a contract
extension as the Carlisle striker prepares to decide his
Miller sees his two-year deal at Brunton Park expire this summer
having proved a big success since his arrival from Middlesbrough in
2011, scoring 23 goals in 57 appearances.
Abbott told the club’s official website: “I like Lee Miller, and
so do the players.
“I think the fans would like to know if he will be with us or
not, but he’ll make his decision at the right time for him.
“We have to hope that he’ll give us another 12 months because I
think he’s an important player for us.
“I talk to him regularly about his situation but he has to make
a decision that works for him. He has told me that he’s serious
about staying but that he wants to see what’s around and he wants
to think about what will be the best thing for him to do next
“You have to allow players to do that. That’s the way the game
is and we have to wait to see what comes of it.”
Meanwhile, Carlisle’s head of football affairs Dennis Booth, who
previously worked as assistant manager to three different bosses,
has left the club.
