Paul Rowley reveals the one job he would leave Salford Red Devils for

Salford Red Devils head coach Paul Rowley

The reputation of Paul Rowley continues to rise after another impressive Salford Red Devils win came yesterday with his side defeating St Helens 20-18 and that’s led to yet more questions about him making a switch to Leeds Rhinos.

Links to coachless Leeds Rhinos have grown since the confirmation of forming Salford Sporting Director Ian Blease made the switch to Headingley, however, Paul Rowley has been steadfast in the stance that he is committed to Salford.

The Salford coach has spoken on that numerous times, including live on Sky Sports to presenter Brian Carney last week where he explained his stance. Rowley said: “It’s nice that I’m linked with any job, it’s a privilege and an honour. I don’t expect anything and I’m looking forward to going to training tomorrow.”

Speaking to BBC Radio Manchester post-game about his chat with Carney, Rowley explained: “Brian (Carney) got me last week, but I love being confronted like that. I have no problem at all. I thought it was great.

“I think if you’re being dishonest or you’re weak then you’ve got a problem with these sort of questions and I’m not weak and I’m not going to be dishonest.

“The truth of the matter is, like I said to Brian, there is no contact between myself and Leeds so it’s a completely fictional set of circumstances and questions so it’s ridiculous.”

Paul Rowley shuts down Leeds Rhinos  links

It would appear that stance hasn’t changed at all although Paul Rowley has revealed one job that he would depart the Red Devils for as he spoke to BBC Radio Manchester following his side’s brilliant win over St Helens.

“It took you seven minutes to get to this point,” Rowley exclaimed when the questions about Leeds were finally asked, clearly something that he has become accustomed to and expects now.

There was one role that Paul Rowley joked he would leave the Salford Stadium for as he exclaimed: “If Miami Dolphins want a defence coach I’ll tell you now I’m going. I am going. I’m not going to hide that fact. I am going. I want some sunshine.

“Other than that it’s like, well you could say it about anybody.”

He did speak more on the links though and accepted that it was a “compliment to everybody” at the club, however, his stance was clear that he intends to remain at Salford Red Devils and see out their project.

He said: “Well, it’s a compliment to everybody, it’s a compliment to the players that we’ve got, and it’s a compliment, and I’ll say it again, to Kurt and Krisnan because they prepare this team, I manage this team, and so we work better together as a three, but it’s three equal parts contributing equally and then these boys tell us what what what to do after time.

“We just like say manage it and control it and chuck the good bits in out and keep the good bits in but then you’ve got Kal and Sneydy as the leaders and the senior players who are good guys and we’re kind of finding what works for them a little bit.”
