When Cardiff scored, we didn’t change anything, we kept going, and that third goal was amazing. It was an amazing team goal.”The fans are always really good, no matter where we go or what the result is. They’ve always been with us throughout the whole 90 minutes and hopefully they enjoyed the game as much as we did.”The most important thing is we got the three points and obviously we look forward now to the next game.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

We are all pleased with his performance but we were even when he didn’t score in previous games so hopefully it will be good for his morale that he scored, and hopefully he will be more free in his mind.”Gianfranco Zola mentioned in the press conference before the match that for a striker it’s difficult when you go through a spell when you don’t score many goals, so his body language was a bit down, but in training he’s working very hard and we all knew that sooner or later he would be able to turn the corner and start scoring goals. Thankfully he did it today, it was very important because we really care about this competition and we want to do well.” last_img read more
