Speaking to Sky Sports, Mario Lemina has opened up on his outpouring of emotion after Fulham’s loss to Wolves last week.
The Gabonese midfielder played the full 90 minutes as the Whites cruelly conceded a last minute goal to the Midlands outfit.
With just six games to go in the league, Fulham look likely to be relegated back down to the Championship, and while Lemina is only a loan player, it’s clear that the team means a lot to him.
“I’m thinking all the time about what we’ve done during the last month, the last week, what we’ve been talking about as a team and the hard work we’ve done in the week,” Lemina said.
“We gave everything on the pitch and then at the end we had a goal coming from nowhere, that hurts, you know, that hurts, because everything you’ve done in that game was for nothing, and we don’t deserve it, we don’t deserve it at all.”
As painful as it is to see a player speak like this and as horrible as it was to see Lemina crying on the pitch at Craven Cottage, it’s great to see how much he cares.
The last time Fulham went down there were far too many mercanaries who couldn’t care less about what happened to the club. The likes of Andre Schurrle, Jean-Michael Seri and Luciano Vietto seemingly couldn’t care less about what happened at the end of the 2018/19 season.
Lemina may not be able to save Fulham, but at least the Whites won’t go down without a fight this time.
