Cedric - We Have To Fight After Burnley

Cedric - We Have To Fight After Burnley

Cedric Soares has called on Southampton to fight following the weekend's defeat to Burnley.

Having lost the match late on at St Mary's Stadium despite dominating large parts of the match and having had the better opportunities, Cedric was obviously disappointed as he spoke to saintsfc as he met with the media following the one nil loss.

With only two wins in seven on home soil, he more than acknowledged the frustration the fans were feeling.

'It's a very disappointing result in the end. We fought a lot for the three points, we created a lot of chances here to win this game and, in the end, we didn't win it. It's a tough moment, of course. We want to give the three points for our fans, but, like I said, it's also very frustrating for ourselves.'

He went on to say that clearly we need to be more clinical in the final third as we know we have the quality to do just that.

'I think we need to be more clinical. We created a lot of chances and we controlled the game, it's true. But, in the end, we didn't win, and in football it counts when you score goals. Here today we need maybe to be more ruthless and be more clinical, and in the last third believe that it's possible to win.'


'Of course, we like to control the game and have the ball, but in the end the most important thing is to win the game. It's frustrating for the fans, it's frustrating for us, but we need to keep fighting and keep believing that it's possible to come out of this tough moment.'

He did promise fans that nobody would hide during this tough period and he expected a positive reaction at the end of the international break.

'I'm always positive, even if it's a tough moment. When it's a tough moment you can see the great players - even if someone whistles against you or something like that, you need to keep going and keep believing in yourself. If you work so hard to be in this club and to achieve this level you need to keep believing in what brings you here, so I think that the great players definitely show up in these tough moments.'
