Sergi Canós: Forward Thinking

First seen in BEES matchday programme, fan favourite Sergi Canós was put under the microscope ahead of Hull City’s visit to Griffin Park

15 May 2018

How would you summarise the team’s end-of-season form?

It’s been really good - we’ve been scoring goals and winning games. That’s all that matters. To score against Queens Park Rangers at home was an incredible feeling but the points were the key thing. It was important because I haven’t been scoring this year and I haven’t been lucky. That goal came from the hard work that I’ve been doing in training.

 

What have you made of the fans this season and the atmosphere they have created at Griffin Park?

The fans are fantastic. The last time at home they were amazing. I think the atmosphere for the Queens Park Rangers game was the top, top level. It was one of the best I’ve ever seen at Griffin Park. The noise was incredible and it made the environment special to play in. That is what it means to the fans to see these moments.

 

Who has been the best player you have faced this season?

One of the most difficult ones to play is Ryan Fredericks from Fulham. He is quick, he goes forward and he is really good. To beat him I have to be more intelligent than him. He is quicker and he has more experience because he’s been playing in the Championship for longer than me. You have to be smarter with your passes and with your dribbles, because everything you do is going to affect him.

 

Which team has been the hardest to play against this year?

Wolves away was a really difficult match - they are the best team in the league. I think the way they play, the players that they have got and the stadium with their supporters is huge. It was a really difficult atmosphere to play in and we found it hard.

 

Can you single out a moment that you’ll look back upon with fondness?

When we beat Fulham 3-1 at home that was one of the best performances of this team. Also, on Boxing Day against Aston Villa, we played some really good football. We’ve been trying to balance the good performances and results. The most important thing in this league is the three points, it doesn’t matter if you play good or bad, you need those points. These games were the right balance and the ones I will look back on.

 

After getting off to a slow start with injury trouble, how do you assess your season overall?

It’s getting better but I think now is a bit too late to start getting back on the scoresheet. I’ve been unlucky because I had two injuries and they affected my performances. Now I’m trying to show everybody what I am and what I have been looking for in the last few months where I haven’t played well. I like to be important in the team and I always try to show that I can play. I feel like I am back to being Sergi now, not like the guy that has been playing before. I have found myself and I think I’m confident again.

 

Are you now keeping an eye on pre-season and getting off to a better start next year?

Of course, that’s the most important thing for me now. We have to finish well against Hull, I have to go into the summer and pre-season and start again. This is what matters. You also you have to enjoy football. I didn’t enjoy the start I had this season. In the end, this year we showed a small part of what we are capable of and if we keep everyone together next year, it could be a really good year. We have to believe.
