Huddersfield Town centre-back Terence Kongolo emphasised the need for improvement not just for himself but also for the team ahead of this weekend’s Premier League match against Newcastle United.
Town comes into the game 14 points behind the Magpies still fighting for survival in the top-flight.
When speaking to #HTTV, the defender analysed his own performances this season.
“I think I can do better, I know my qualities and I know what I can do. For me, I can do a lot better than what I’m showing right now.”
Town had a break from Premier League action last weekend after being knocked out of the Emirates FA Cup.
Terence described how the week’s break helped in how the team prepared for the game on Saturday.
“I think the new Head Coach came with the new plans, new ideas on how we have to play.
“So, we took the time, and we think it went well. Everyone knows now what they have to do.
“Jan, he’s straight and honest with us. I think he has good plans, and everyone trusts him. We’ll see what the next few games bring us.”
The defender highlighted how the performance against Arsenal buoyed the group.
“Everyone gave everything in that game. In the second half, the team was stronger.
“We have to learn from the mistakes but keep the positivity of the game and take that into the Newcastle match.”
“Everyone is in a good, positive mood and we will give everything so that we can win.”
As well as that, Kongolo stated the importance of January signing Karlan Grant’s goal against the Gunners.
“We don’t score a lot and, for him also, he’s new and it’s good for his confidence. He’s a good player and he can help us in the next few games.”
This weekend, Terence could be against a more physical challenge in the form of Newcastle United striker Salomón Rondón.
“He’s a good player and I like that style of striker,” said the 25-year-old.
“I have to strong, I have to smart because he is a very tough opponent to play against. We’ll see tomorrow.”
