Barry knows what is expected of him as a midfield mentor, but admits itâ€™s not a role he is immediately accustomed to.
â€śItâ€™s certainly not a natural thing for me,â€ť he said. â€śI keep myself to myself. Iâ€™m quiet, but in terms of setting an example on the training ground and off the pitch, players can feed off that.
â€śOn the pitch is where I can do my talking a bit more and talk the younger players through a game and help them, especially James who is playing alongside me. Itâ€™s not a case of pulling players to one side off the pitch but doing the right thing and them picking things up from you.
â€śThatâ€™s more the route Iâ€™ll be going down.â€ť
