When discussing his spell in Sweden, Sporting Braga attacker, Luther Singh, has opened up on what happened off the pitch that saw him frozen out of his team, GAIS.
Singh was dropped from the Swedish second division team’s starting line-up by coach, Benjamin Westman, despite the fact that he scored nine goals and made three assists in 28 appearances throughout the season, establishing himself as a fan favourite. Singh has now opened up on what happened, saying that he felt that there was no reason to drop him.
“For me, I don’t think there was any reason not to play me, but he’s the coach, the boss of the team and he has the last say,” Singh told Soccer Laduma. “So, for some reason, there was something he didn’t like, so he brought in someone that was better than me or more effective than me.”
Singh then said that the best thing for him to do under those circumstances was to double his effort and earn his place in the team.
“I don’t have any suspicions because I’m not the type of person that would go up to him and ask him why I’m not going to play,” he continued. “Because I’m capable of playing, I deserve to play. Everyone can see that, not just myself, and I won’t go around and fight about it. I’d rather just go on the field and let the football talk for me."
