Dario Wanted To Keep Schumacher

Dario says he would have kept midfielder Steven Schumacher if finances had allowed him.

Schumacher was released from Gresty Road in the summer after three injury hampered years with the club. He made just 64 starts for the club, the last in May's away trip to Rotherham.

He is now preparing to face the Railwaymen on Saturday with his new side Bury and returns as the Shakers' captain.

Speaking to the official website, Dario revealed he is wary of the threat Schuy poses and says he'd ideally have kept him at the club.

'Steven Schumacher can be a goal threat from midfield and that is why we were eager to bring him to the club in the first place. He is a box-to-box midfielder and a good player.

'I would have liked to have kept him but finances didn't really dictate that.'


Hmm. I suppose it's a polite way of saying he was dead wood, as he was. A good player on his day, undoubtedly, but his injury record was appalling.

Responding to Dario's words however, Schumacher says he was ready for a fresh start.

Speaking to the official Bury website, Schumacher said:

'He mentioned at the end of last season he might have to let me go to give the kids a chance. He said he was going to be forced to playing a lot of the younger ones and needed to get get me off the wage bill.

'It was time for me to move on anyway and get a fresh start. It's nice of him to say that though I'm happy [at Bury].'

'I've not got a point to prove. Whilst at Crewe I always thought my performances weren't too bad, when I was fit I played games.'
