Hearts of Oak forward, Albert Diego Dieudonne Eonde, has addressed his goal drought and expressed his determination to improve his performance.
Since joining the Ghanaian club from the Zimbabwean league as one of their top attackers, the Cameroonian international has experienced a difficult period without scoring. His goal drought has extended to thirteen appearances, but he remains focused on breaking that streak.
Eonde acknowledges that he has previously been successful in finding the back of the net for his former teams, and he came to Hearts of Oak with the same objective. Despite the lack of goals, he takes responsibility for his performance and does not make any excuses.
“What I can say is that I won’t give any excuse. I’ve been scoring goals in my previous teams and I came here to do same job.
While Eonde feels the pressure to contribute to the team’s success, he believes that goals alone are not the sole measure of his impact. He prioritizes the team’s interests and strives to give his best on the pitch. He emphasizes that scoring goals without winning matches is meaningless, and he is committed to working hard until he regains his scoring touch.
“For the goals, the breakthrough will come and it will change everything. I always have the pressure whenever I get to the pitch to give my best to the team. Sometimes is not just about the goal but I put the team before me,” Albert in an interview with Ghanasportspage.com.
Although he does not make any promises, Eonde is confident that once he breaks through with a goal, it will have a positive impact on his confidence and overall performance. He understands the importance of that breakthrough and believes it will change everything for him.
Despite his current goal drought, the 24-year-old remains unfazed and believes in his ability to rediscover his scoring form. He is focused on adapting to his new environment and maintaining a positive mindset.
“Scoring without winning is unnecessary. I will keep on working until I get it right. I won’t make any promise but when the breakthrough comes it will change everything and boost my confidence level. I just need that one goal for the rest to flow.
Hearts of Oak, as a team, have also struggled in front of goal, suffering four defeats in their last five games. They are currently in a competitive race to secure a top-four finish, and their recent loss to Medeama SC has seen them drop to eighth place in the Premier League standings.
In conclusion, Eonde is determined to overcome his goal drought and contribute to the team’s success. He remains confident in his abilities and is working hard to get back on track.
“I have done it before and I believe can still do it. Is all about adopting and coping for everything to flow,” Albert ended.
