Onel Hernandez: We have lots to work on

27 October 2019

Onel Hernandez believes Norwich City need to work harder and battle for points in the Premier League.

The Canaries lost 3-1 at home to Manchester United on Sunday evening, stretching their winless run to six in the league.

Hernandez says the team need to be stronger and turn their attention to future games rather than looking back at previous tasks.

“I’m very sad that we lost today. For the first 15 minutes, we were good. The goals we conceded weren’t very good and it was, at the end of the day, a tough game.

“We are not in the Championship anymore, we are in the Premier League. Every chance that we have, we have to take it.

“If you don’t, the other team will take their chance and you’ll end up behind. We have to stick together and work harder.

“We need to forget the last games. The season, for me, hasn’t been bad. We’ve continued our style from last year and I like that.

“We are thinking too much about the last games, like our win over Manchester City. This is over now. We have to stick together and work hard because we want to stay in this league.

“We have to fight for that. From the outside as well, we need the fans in every game. We need to feel their support and we need to give something back.”

Hernandez was introduced at the start at the second-half and was a constant threat down the left hand side. He grabbed a consolation goal for City with minutes left on the clock, becoming the first Cuban player to score in the Premier League.

“It’s amazing to score my first goal in the Premier League but at the end of the day, I don’t want to celebrate this goal. We had already conceded three goals.

“I’m very proud for that. I think I’ll have a lot of messages from Cubans about it. I love helping my team and it’s more important that we win the games.”
