Back to his best

17 November 2016

After two strong weeks on the training pitch and countless positive signs during the break, Carlos Carvalhal feels Fernando Forestieri is back and ready to give his best to the team.

The head coach says Forestieri has plenty more to give this season and was delighted with what the livewire has produced on the training pitch this week.

That positive news certainly bodes well for the Owls over the busy schedule in the coming weeks and Carlos explained:

“Let me tell you about Fernando – I think we have Fernando really back again.

“These two weeks - but especially this last week - he is back very, very strong, very powerful with a fantastic attitude.

“I am sure that if he expresses on Saturday what he has been doing during these two weeks, we will be with a better Fernando again, for sure.

“I am very happy about that. All of us are waiting for the best from Fernando and in reality, he is back 100%.”

Not just with Forestieri, Carvalhal believes there are a number of players in the squad that have gears to climb.

“Sometimes there are no explanations, you just need that click,” he continued.

“The moment you look in the mirror and say ‘I will change’ or ‘I will do something different’ or ‘I have a new energy’ or ‘I will do something better and better.’

“The value is more than they are showing so far. We know the team can do better when all the individuals are giving the best from them.

“We will absolutely score more goals and do better in the future.”
