Nigerian international, Simy Nwankwo remains confident his struggling Crotone side can shock the bookmakers in the Italian Serie A by staying in the league despite a difficult campaign that has seen them earn just 3 wins this season, AOIFootball.com reports.
The 28-year-old has no doubt been the club’s standout player this campaign, scoring the most goals, but he believes the hard work put in by the rest of the squad shows their determination and focus in their quest for survival.
“Our chances are very bright; we just have to continue believing in the good work we are doing as we’ve been playing good football not minding our limitations we keep faith in our games. So, I am very positive we will finish the season well,” Simy reiterated.
The former Portimonense of Portugal star forward also talked about the deadly Covid-19 pandemic ravaging the world.
“Last year was really difficult with all the strange and unwanted happenings around the globe. Loss of lives and everything, then playing football in empty stadiums. It really was a tough year but we can only hope on coming out stronger,” he said.
The four-times capped Eagle concluded by adding that the Italian Serie A remains a competitive league and has been a massive test for him with plenty of world-class players plying their trade in the league.
