I played and a I feel good, I’m happy. I was out for six months but it didn’t hold me back. It’s better that the national team coach takes players to the African Cup of Nations who are 100% fit and I’ll stay here.
I’m sorry to be out of the national side but it’d be impossible to be out for 6 months and then go straight to the African Cup of Nations. De Jong is a big loss for us, but I’m back playing now and we try and do well for him.
I have to stay fit and try to help the team and do whatever the team and the coach asks of me. We can get higher in the league. When there were problems, I always said that the team would come back.
Now we want to win the last two games before the winter break and then start the new year as best we can.
