Ade on Confidence and Fitness

Ade on Confidence and Fitness

Ade Akinbiyi has given his views on the team after his return to the Clarets following his debut at Reading in the FA Cup match and last Saturday`s league match away to Southampton

'Given the amount of games without a win, the confidence is still high among the players and you can tell from Saturday's game that we are looking to build from there.

'Everyone can beat everyone in this league and if you can put a run of two wins together you are back up there.

'You have to look to push for the Premier League and that's what we are looking to do.'

Ade goes on to comment about his move back to Turf Moor and his general level of fitness.

'Obviously it is great in the Premier League, but if you are not playing you have to take a step back and think what your future is,'

'Burnley came in, I didn't hesitate and it's good to be back. Now I just want to play games and I am just going to put my head down and work hard.

'Obviously I am not fully match fit and I need to get that under my belt. But the more games I play the better I will be.

I'm certainly not 100 per cent yet, so I need to work hard and hopefully the goals will come.'

Welcome back Ade and if you can score on your debut when not fully match fit this augers well for the future.

For those of you who want to hear more from Ade, the Official Site have announced that there will be an exclusive interview with Ade on Clarets World later today in which he talks further about his move back to the Clarets.
