Fulham’s Moussa Dembele has said confidence is currently riding high within the team.
You might think that there may be a dour atmosphere at Craven Cottage right now with the team yet to win since they appointed Slavisa Jokanovic as their head coach at the start of the season.
But according to Dembele, it is the exact opposite as every in the team is feeling positive and confident that they can get a good result against their West London rivals QPR on Saturday. Interestingly, the R’s also struggled after appointing their new manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink but recently they have picked up in form and will be expecting to win in this fierce derby match.
But with McCormack and Dembele now staying at the club after speculation suggested they would be leaving the team in the January transfer window, the mood is riding high at Craven Cottage.
Talking ahead of the game with QPR, Dembele told the club website: “It was a very good game for us that we won 4-0,”
“It was a local derby against QPR so, of course, I’ve got good memories of this match. Hopefully we can do well this time and win again.
“In a game like that you always want to score. You want to score in every game but a derby is a special moment so you always want to score in matches like that, for the fans and for the Club.”
“Yes we are, we are.”
“You have to be confident and keep your head focused when you’re not winning games, and hopefully we will win games very, very soon.”
“We’ve improved our style of play and we’re playing with more intensity, but the results are not there yet. So we have to keep working hard to get those wins, and I’m sure they’ll come very soon.”
“QPR are at home and they’ll have their fans behind them but I’m not really worried about this, I’m just focused on what’s happening on the pitch.”
