FERRAN SIBILA PRE-BOURNEMOUTH

28 January 2022

Our assistant coach met the press ahead of Saturday's clash with the Cherries.

ON PLAYER AVAILABILITY

"We have good news on Josh Benson, who today came through a full training session. So this is positive for us. It's a boost to have another player available, because everyone in the squad is important for us.

"Cauley (Woodrow) is going to be a while longer, but Callum Brittain and a few others are getting closer and hopefully, not this week, but in the near future we can call upon them again.

"Obbi Oularé is still not available, he's injured."

TAKING RESPONSIBILITY

"Everybody inside the club has to take and share the responsibility. The players, the coaches, everyone working for Barnsley Football Club has to take responsibility.

"And in this difficult situation that we are in right now, we all need to do more. 

"If we all keep doing the same things, we won't get anywhere. So we have to give more, all of us. If we give that extra percentage, it's the only way we can turn this around. 

"If we all just drop, after a bad result, then we have given up. I can promise you, everyone working for this club is giving their very best to get us out of this situation."

ANY REGRETS ON TAKING THE JOB?

"No, no, no. Absolutely not! We are happy to be here, honoured to be working for Barnsley and we knew it was a very big challenge. Nothing has changed for us. 

"We will keep striving for improvement, putting in the hours and the hard work, to try and get to a better place as a football club. 

"As people, we cannot do anything about the past. We can learn from it, but we cannot change it. So we have to look forward at all times, and treat each day as day zero, and another chance to turn everything around."

ON BOURNEMOUTH

"They are a good team. They have their strengths, their weaknesses, as all teams do. But lately, they've not been gaining as many positive results, so it's about exploiting those weaknesses on Saturday. 

"We know the fans are hurting right now. But we all are, especially the players. I hope that our fans can give positive messages to the players, to support them at Oakwell and when we get that first win it will be a release for everbody and then we build from there.

"There are 60 points to play for. We can't give up, we will fight for everything."
