Town’s Number Five speaks after Bournemouth defeat

- Terence Kongolo reflects on defeat on the south coast
- Dutch defender speaks of disappointment at 2-1 loss at Bournemouth
- Listen to the interview on #HTTV

Huddersfield Town’s Dutch defender Terence Kongolo told #HTTV of his frustration having suffered a 2-1 defeat on the South Coast against Bournemouth.

“I think a little bit frustration because it’s now two games in a row we lost, and we have to collect points.” Explained Kongolo

“For me I’m a professional footballer and I want to win and get points.”

The Dutchman scored Town’s only goal of the evening - his first for Town in a competitive fixture – but found his feelings overshadowed by the final result.

“I don’t care if I score or someone else scores; I want to win. I’m not happy but we have to look to Arsenal and forget about it. It doesn’t help because we lost.”

The Terriers ended the game with twenty-three shots to Bournemouth’s six and a lion share of 67% of the possession, with Town’s number five explaining he felt Town didn’t deserve anything more for a good response having gone two goals down.

“It’s not about deserved because we have to finish the chances. We have to keep the clean sheet, everyone can say the performance is good, but we are defenders and we have to keep the clean and we have to score also.”

Kongolo shared his concluding thoughts on the travelling contingent from West Yorkshire, praising the travelling Town fans that made the trip on a cold December evening.

“The support was loud in the game, I feel sorry for them that we didn’t make them happy to get points or win this game. I hope next time we will get some points.”
