Part of the collective

30 October 2015

Saturday’s clash with Nottingham Forest could see striker Gary Hooper make his debut for the Owls.

The 27-year-old has joined on loan from Norwich until January but Carlos Carvalhal expects much more than goals from the new recruit.

First and foremost, all new additions to the squad must slot in and add to the dynamic of the team and work hard for his team mates.

When asked how important a prolific spell from Hooper could be, Carlos explained:

“Football is a collective game, strikers are a part of the game. I don’t just bring in the strikers to do goals.

“I bring in the strikers to first of all do teamwork, he must work to the collective, he must be part of the collective and he must be inside the dynamic.

“If the dynamic is good and everybody does the teamwork, the goals will be the consequence.”

He added: “Who do the goals, I don’t care. Whether it’s the strikers or the centre halves, it is not important to me.

“For me, it’s more important that the players come to help the team, come to support their colleagues, do the teamwork and if the goals come, it will be the consequence of that dynamic.”
