Vestergaard Says He Needs To Put Ego Away And Play
Wednesday, 17th Oct 2018 12:40
Jannik Vesteraard has spoken about his frustrations about being out of the team, read what he has to say here.
Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet quotes Jannik Vesteraard as saying
“Of course, I was disappointed that I did not get playing time at the World Cup. It’s therefore a challenge to maintain motivation along the way. "
Naturally, I have personal goals and ambitions with my career. And sometimes you may see yourself a bit better than reality reflects. I took part in fulfilling a role, and it is about overriding ego and my own needs. It is about tackling the challenge based on the principle that the team always comes first.”
The only problem is that he is speaking about his 16 month absence from the Denmark team ahead of his first game time since June 2018 when he played the full 90 minutes in his country's 2-0 win over Austria.
His words could equally apply to his time at Saints where after initially looking promising he has appeared to have lost his way somewhat and looked a lot short of being the domineering defender that Saints fans hoped that he would be.
Hopefully he will be applying this philosophy to regaining his spot in the starting XI at St Mary's where he found himself 4th choice central defender when Mark Hughes reverted to a three man defence for the first half against Chelsea.
Certainly we need him to do so and do so fast !

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
