Self-appraisal: Im a better player now, Albert Adomah says

Ghana international Albert Adomah scored the only goal for Middlesbrough win over Bolton Wanderers at home in the English Championship.

Adomah believes he is a better player now despite not scoring more frequently due to his adaptation to new roles and having a defensive mindset now.

Adomah’s first half strike earned all three points for his side and said after the game:

‘I have played in a very different role this season but it has definitely, definitely developed me as a player.

‘I have been working harder, keeping the shape, tackling back, taking responsibility… I’m a better player now.

‘I know some supporters want to see me entertain and run at players and unfortunately that hasn’t been the case this season.

‘But if the manager wants me to play in a certain role then I am happy to do it for the team.

‘I have played not just as a more forward winger but as a wide midfielder and even as a wing-back. But I don’t mind where I play so long as it is working for the team and so long as we get the points.

‘I think I am more selfless now. When the manager plays me out of position I just go with the flow and do my best and, to be fair, you can’t really complain because it is working.

‘When you are in your rightful position it is nice too, of course, but you have to just do whatever you can for the team.’

Albert Adomah scored 12 goals from 38 starts last season playing as an attacking winger for Aitor Karanka’s Middlesbrough.
