– Millwall chairman John Berylson
On behalf of the board of Millwall Football Club, I want to express my thanks to Kenny for his fantastic service and achievements over the past five and a half years.
He has played a major role in creating a stable environment at Millwall which hadn't been the case prior to his arrival.
On a personal level, whilst respecting Kenny's decision, I wish I could have persuaded him to change his mind. He was my first acquisition as chairman of the club and has proved himself to be one of the best.
I am losing a great manager, but he will remain a good friend and hopefully, golf partner.
– Millwall defender George Saville
It's a very big game and we need a point or a win to stay in the division.
We need everyone - the squad, the staff and the fans - to get behind us. It was disappointing to lose at Forest but I thought we battled hard and stayed together.
There was frustration and disappointment, but the gaffer told us to to keep going, to keep doing what we're doing and it will come.
