OVERVIEW OF: Aina: I’d Like To Add More Assists, Goals To My Game
Ola Aina says he would love to add more assists and also goals to his game after setting up compatriot Josh Maja in Sunday’s win at Everton.
Maja bagged a brace in his first start for Fulham since his loan move from Bordeaux.
His first goal was an assist from Aina who laid a low pass for Maja to tap into the net.
And speaking on helping Maja with his first Premier League goal, Aina told Fulham’s website:”I’d like to add more assists and maybe a few more goals, so it was good to get up and running and finally get an assist this season.
“I was looking for Josh, I was looking for that ball into him, so I’m really happy it came off.
“I’ve known Josh for a bit now and I’m just happy that I could contribute to his first Prem goal. It was a really good moment for him and for the team.
“I think that will help his confidence, and will properly settle him into the side, and hopefully he just pushes on from here and does what he needs to do for the team.”
Aina stated that the challenge now for Fulham will be to build on the win against Everton, starting in Burnley on today (Wednesday).
“That’s our only goal right now I think, as a group,” he agreed. “We know we can play well, we can defend well, but we need to keep winning games. That’s our ultimate goal, and I think we can do it.
“We back ourselves in every game. That’s the confidence that everyone has in each other in and around the team.
“But I do think the Everton result has given us a massive lift, and I feel like we can take that momentum through into this game and come away with three points.
“It’s definitely going to be a difficult one [at Burnley]. The style of football that they play is often very difficult for teams to go up against.
“But we’re up for the challenge, and hopefully we can leave there with three points.”
