Jim Goodwin has spoken for the first time as Aberdeen manager to RedTV (Aberdeen Club TV).
The Tramore native signed a two and a half year contract with Aberdeen last Saturday.
Jim says; “It has been brilliant to finally get into Cormack Park. I had never seen the facility before, I had watched some bits online and seen pictures but had not had the pleasure of walking round it. I was blown away with what I saw. It is actually better than what I anticipated. The club have obviously made a huge investment in the development and hopefully we will see success coming off the back of it.
“As you can image the first couple of days have been quite hectic, trying to get to know everybody. I have been having as many meetings as possible with all the backroom staff and all the admin staff, not only at the training ground but also at the stadium as well. I was keen to come down to Pittodrie not only to speak to RedTV but to also introduce myself to the wider staff because it is a massive club. You really get a feel for the size of the club and the resources that are available to you.
“I am delighted to be here, and I look forward to the weeks and months and years ahead."
Ahead of his first home game on Saturday against Dundee FC, Jim will be present Friday as the Club celebrates its greatest-ever manager with a statue unveiling of Sir Alex Ferguson.
WLR would like to wish Jim all the best in his new position in Scotland.
