CLAUDIO GOMES ON TIGERS CLASH

5 November 2021

Our on-loan midfield man spoke ahead of our meeting with Hull City at Oakwell.

ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT

“The feeling was good, everyone enjoyed it. The players, the staff and the fans of course. We all shared the moment at the end, because it’s been such a long time.

“Last season this club made the play-offs, so the expectation is higher than what we’ve managed so far. This has to be the start of getting ourselves back up the table.

“Football is like this; good and bad moments. But the mentality here remains strong, we are working hard every day in training and the rewards will surely come for us.”

MANAGERIAL CHANGE

“Markus left, and I’m sorry about that situation. It wasn’t just about the coach, we all must share the blame for the results we got. 

“Under Jo, we keep on working hard, remain in positive spirits and thankfully we got a good result on Wednesday night. 

“It’s about staying together. We were all on the same page. The fans too. I want to say thank you to them, because even when we went behind, they got behind us, they spurred us on. 

“This is going to be important for the guys - let’s stick together. Let’s be a real unit.”

ON HIS OWN FORM

“If we win or lose, we do so as a team. If I’ve played well, it’s because of my teammates. We are all in this together.

“I’ve enjoyed my time here at Barnsley so far. It’s, for me, a place where I feel at home. That’s good for me, and I feel happy to have made the decision to come to Oakwell.

“Playing Under 23s to the Championship, the gap is massive. But the staff and players here have been incredibly supportive of me, I’ve had great advice and it’s all part of my development as a footballer and as a human being.”

HULL CITY

“Tomorrow the game is going to be important for us, because we have to take those three points. It’s about a message as much as anything, that we can repeat Wednesday night, get some consistency, and enjoy the game and the results.

“It will be another hard challenge, but we know what we can achieve. We’ve just shown that.

“Like I say, with the Reds fans behind us, we want to get another win for them, for us and the staff.”
