Djene Dakonam is optimistic that Getafe will recover for their poor 2020-21 Spanish elite division campaign.
Their last outing ended in a 0-0 draw versus Atletico Madrid at the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Perez and the club captain is not oblivious about his team’s struggles since the commencement of the season.
While disclosing that his team will keep working hard to reverse their predicament, he is upbeat that Getafe can get ‘the season ahead’.
"The main thing is that we are aware of what we are going through and what our situation is. I think we've lost our hallmarks,” Djene told the club website.
“Getafe is an intense team, which fits few goals and especially strong defensively, but this year it is costing us. We work every day to reverse the situation, win the games and get the season ahead.
“We all know what we have to contribute, we are totally confident, we are all a pineapple. This year is being very complicated and competitive.
“In our case I also have the impression that it has affected us a lot not being able to share as a wardrobe all the moments we were used to before the pandemic.
“It's hard for us to get used to this reality, but it's not an excuse. We're professionals. Asking for something from the trust is something that, to me, personally, costs me.
“Whatever happens they've always been there and given us enormous support. The message I'd send you is to keep supporting us from home. I'm sure he's never going to leave us and together we're going to get the goal."
Djene joined Getafe in 2017 on a four-year contract after staying just for one season with Belgian Division A side Sint-Truidense.
