    Che Adams never lost belief despite Southampton goal drought

    ‘I always had self-belief and I knew what I could do’: Che Adams insists ‘it was just a matter of time’ before he found the back of the net for Southampton after going 29 GAMES without scoring

    • Che Adams was linked with a move away in the summer after goal-drought 
    • Southampton topped the Premier League standings on Friday for the first time
    • Adams has scored in three of his last four matches, and seven in his last 14 

    Southampton striker Che Adams says ‘it was just a matter of time’ before he found form for the club, after going 29 matches without scoring. 

    It was a weekend to remember for Southampton. The 2-0 victory against Newcastle was not only their fifth win in six matches, but it temporarily lifted them to the top of the Premier League standings for the first time in their history.

    It’s no coincidence that Che Adams has also found his best form for Southampton, and despite his barren run, he always had the belief that he was going to start scoring regularly. 

    Southampton striker Che Adams has been in sublime form, scoring three goals in four games

    Since netting his first goal for the club in July 2020 – an exquisite 40-yard lob against Manchester City –  he has gone on to score six more in 13 appearances, including three in his last four.  

    ‘It was an unbelievable feeling – more relief than anything,’ he told Southampton’s official website

    ‘I think it was just a matter of time. When that goal went in, I went on to score a couple more and it just brings confidence.’

    Adams has struck up a promising strike partnership with Danny Ings, and he’s also stepped up in his teammate’s absence. Adams scored his side’s first goal in the Newcastle win, and with Ings set to miss over a month of action due to a knee injury, Adams’ form is more important than ever.

    The 23-year-old admits that it was tough to adapt to life in the Premier League at first, but he always had the backing of manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.

    ‘At the start it was quite tough, because it took me a lot of time to get used to the league and all the players,’ he says. 

    ‘Coming from scoring all the time to not doing it so much, it took a huge effect. I think every striker in every team wants to score goals – that’s what they’re trained to do.

    ‘I think, from my side, I was probably trying a bit too hard to score goals. I was a bit naïve at times – I was snatching at things and shooting rather than passing.’

    ‘I think confidence is goals and playing well consistently. Way before I even scored, the guys still had trust in me and the manager had trust in me to keep putting me on. 

    ‘That’s massive respect to them, because obviously it’s not a nice place where I was at, with not scoring, but it’s not the end of the world. Repaying them feels great.’

    After signing for Southampton from Birmingham for £16 million at the start of the 2019-20 campaign, Adams still hadn’t scored by the time the season was put on hold in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, but he believes the enforced break was what he needed in order to discover his form.

    ‘I think it helped me a lot, coming away from football for a bit, and just realising what I had to do right and what I was doing wrong at the time,’ he admits. ‘I think it was a great thing for the team as well.

    ‘I was working on my fitness and working on other aspects of my game – conditioning to run harder, work harder and play smarter.

    ‘I can’t say it was a nice time, that lockdown happened, but for me personally it was probably the right thing, and obviously for the team at the time. We came back harder, we worked better, it was good for us.’
