Rotherham Defender Robertson Begs Ajayi Not To Leave

Rotherham United defender Clark Robertson hopes that his flourishing partnership with Nigeria defender, Semi Ajayi is not broken up in January.

Robertson has played the last six games for the Millers, five of them next to Ajayi in central defence and they have gone unbeaten in that time.

While the Scot has performed admirably, it is Ajayi that continues to get the headlines following his international recognition with Nigeria.

Boss Paul Warne said it would be a good January transfer window if he can keep Semi Ajayi at the club, and Robertson is not keen on losing his buddy either.

“He (Semi Ajayi) is great to play alongside, he is quick, strong and good on the ball,” the former Blackpool player told The Star.

“I think we complement each other well with the qualities we have.”

He said further of Ajayi: “I’d like to think I don’t get caught out of position too much, but it is always nice to have someone with pace next to you, he is just good to play alongside.

“He is obviously going to have a lot of attention, he is in the Nigeria squad and that is only going to enhance his reputation, but I hope we can keep hold of him because he is a great player.”

  • Money talks:

    He has 18 months left on his contract, if they don’t want to lose him, they need to do what Watford did with Isaac Success, give him an improved contract to reflect his performances and improved football profile and tie him to the club for longer. By the end of the season he will have a year left and they could lose him very cheaply.
