Andreas: I really want to thank the fans
Our Goal of the Season winner, Andreas Pereira, was quick to thank the Official App users who voted for him...
Q: Andreas, how does it feel to have that trophy in your hands? Andreas Pereria: It’s very heavy. I want to say thanks to all my team mates, the staff who helped me, the fans who voted for me, so I’m very happy to win this and play for a great club like this and win a trophy. I’m very happy. Q: Was it one of those goals that as soon as you struck the ball you knew it was going in? AP: Yes. As soon as I struck the ball, to be fair I didn’t see it going in because I used the defender in front of me, but as soon as the crowd went crazy I knew it was in the back of the net. Q: You did hit one like that in pre-season as well didn’t you? It was a free kick wasn’t it? Same feeling? AP: Yeah, same feeling, but this one is in the Premier League, my first goal, so. Q: Pretend you’re a fan. Do you get more satisfaction out of the team goals or do you like to bang it in the top corner? AP: I think it’s the importance of the goal. It depends. This was the equaliser. For me it was very important and for the team as well. But I think it depends. The game, if we’re losing, the equaliser is important. The important thing is that we won.
