Dalot: It was a moment to be proud of
In the latest UTD Podcast, Diogo Dalot tells us why scoring his first goal for the Reds meant so much to him…
SH: And you scored your first goal recently. What was that like? DD: It was unbelievable. It was like a release of some frustration, as well. It's been a tough one-and-a-half years here, because of the injuries and it was a big fight for me, since I came. That moment was a moment to be proud as well, because scoring goals is always unbelievable and I didn't score for one or two years so it was a very good moment. SH: The celebration, it looked like there was a lot of relief? DD: Oh, it was genuine. It was something I didn't think about. When you're showering before the game you imagine scoring goals and you imagine how you're going to celebrate but that moment you just don't think. DM: It's true. We don't score a lot of goals so when you do it's like ooh, I've scored. Total shock, yeah. The likes of Marcus [Rashford] they can rehearse what they want to do because they know eventually they're going to score. They can go three or four games without scoring but they know they're going to score. We're thinking we might score, we might not score. So when you do score you just do that instinctive thing of whatever comes to you.
