Dielna delight

6 December 2014

  • Claude Dielna scores late winner at Ewood Park
  • Frenchman delighted with victory over Blackburn
  • Dielna was 91st minute substitute and scored in the 93rd

Claude Dielna may have only been on the field for a matter of minutes but the Frenchman produced the moment of the match right at the last.

The powerful defender’s 25-yard strike arrowed into the net in the 93rd minute to win the game for Wednesday after his introduction from the bench just two minutes earlier.

Dielna exclusively told “You give me one minute, I give you a goal. That is no problem for me. Every day I work hard and I know what I can do.

“I want to show everybody that I can play at this level and I am confident in my ability.

“I’m happy because I haven’t played for a long time, I’m happy for the group because this team works so hard and we wanted that win today.”

The stopper spoke of the moment his first-time hit rippled the back of the net.

He said: “Lee gave me the ball and when I have chance to shoot, I shoot.

“I never need a second invitation to shoot.

“For me, this is what I work for. I come to work every day to improve and to get better. I feel really good, it was a special feeling but I don’t want to stop there.

“I’m happy for all our fans tonight.

“It was a hard game but we showed we have a strong mentality and that is why we won the game.”
