I’m Loving It

Having scored four goals in four games, Josh Maja is absolutely loving life right now and is hoping to make it five in five at Wimbledon this weekend.

“I’m in a good place right now, and I’m confident, so whenever I get the opportunity to shoot, I’m believing that it’s going to go into the net,” said Maja. “If I continue that, they’ll keep going in, and you’ll see another celebration on Saturday, definitely. It’s a lot of fun playing in this team because we’ve got the players to play attacking football and a manager who backs us to go out onto the pitch and show what we can do. As players, if the manager’s giving us that confidence, we’re going to show it. I’m gaining a lot of confidence from these games, and from getting more game time and more goals. Hopefully, I can continue to do that. I was obviously hoping I would get my chance, and I have,” he said. “Training has been a big thing because I’ve worked hard to show the coaches what I can do, and they’ve given me the chance in games. I’ve repaid that faith, and hopefully I can continue to do that. We’re waiting for players to come back, and when they do it will be healthy competition for me to keep my head down and keep working hard. As long as I’m doing what I’m doing on the pitch, it won’t be a problem. As long as we keep working as a team, I think we can keep winning games. And if I keep my head focused and stay hungry, I think I can keep scoring goals.”
