Jordi Gomez says he was glad to be back amongst the goals but disappointed with the defeat.
- Jordi Gomez scored his first goal since returning to Latics at Norwich.
- “I want to help the team, that’s what matters”, Jordi Gomez.
- “I was happy with the goal, but I wanted more.” Jordi Gomez.
“I was happy with the goal, it felt good when it hit the back of the net,” said Gomez, after scoring his first Latics goal since returning to the DW Stadium last month, “but it’s disappointing we were not able to get something out of the game because I thought the team played really well to get back into the game.
“It was a nice team goal, good movement but we had many other opportunities and it was a shame we could not have got something in the end.”
Gomez said the team gave itself a mountain to climb after a poor start but showed great signs of improvement to get themselves back into the game.
“It is difficult when you go down so early and it changes the game plan completely. But I thought the team did well against a team who were in the Premier League after that and we made the crowd quiet with the way we came back in the second half.”
Gomez had a chance minutes after his goal, when his free kick hit the side netting, and he thought himself it was in.
“Yes, I hit the ball really well, and I could see that the keeper wasn’t going to reach the ball. Unfortunately, it just went the wrong side of the post. We had some other great chances in the final minutes, their goalkeeper made some really good saves and the team was disappointed we didn’t get anything from the game.
“But at the other side is that we know that if we play with the same intensity that we did tonight, then we will win games in this division, we have the players who can score goals.”
Gomez says there is still a mood at the club and he is delighted to be back at the club.
“The feeling in the dressing room is very positive, and in football you have to keep working, keep improving. It’s not about any individual, it’s about the team.”
