Nigeria’s Ola Aina has said that all the Fulham players are committed to the club re-awakening after the victory at Everton.
Aina was given the nod at left-back on Merseyside. It’s a role he’s comfortable with, as was demonstrated by an assured display that included him setting up the opening goal for his Nigeria international teammate Josh Maja.
“I played all of last season at left wing-back, so it’s a position that I’m familiar with,” he told the club’s website. “Whatever the team needs, if I can step in somewhere and fill a position, then that’s something that I’m happy to do.
“I’d like to add more assists and maybe a few more goals, so it was good to get up and running and finally get an assist this season.
“I was looking for Josh, I was looking for that ball into him, so I’m really happy it came off.
“I’ve known Josh for a bit now and I’m just happy that I could contribute to his first Prem goal. It was a really good moment for him and for the team.
“I think that will help his confidence, and will properly settle him into the side, and hopefully he just pushes on from here and does what he needs to do for the team.”
