As reported by the Chronicle, Mo Diame has given an interview following his return from Africa, and great performance at the weekend against Derby.
Diame talked first about his time in Africa, saying: “I was following every single game, even if I couldn’t watch it,”
“I was talking to the guys. It wasn’t easy. The Cup game was a bad result, but we need to stay focused. We know we have a good quality squad.”
He then shared his views on the clubs lack of business while he was away, saying: “The transfer window is now closed and we need to stick together and make sure we work hard.
“If we want to get promoted, we will need everyone. Maybe some players who didn’t play a lot in the first half of the season will make the difference at the end. We need to stick together.”
Before adding: “Even if I didn’t play a lot at the Africa Cup of Nations, I kept working there,”
“I am fresh. I feel good and I am confident.
