Away Days: Southampton

Hear all the natural noise from the pitch and the stands as Watford drew 1-1 with Southampton in the Premier League, thanks to José Holebas' late equaliser.

Holebas: “It Doesn't Matter Who Scores, I Want The Team To Win”

Hornets full-back José Holebas scored the all-important equaliser against Southampton in the 82nd minute at St. Mary's Stadium on Saturday, but despite the Greek defender rescuing a point with his deflected strike, he still wants more - as is his way.

Speaking to Premier League Productions after the game, the full-back said that first and foremost he was pleased to help the team.

“I think the draw is a good result for both teams because Southampton have showed they believe they can take the three points here,” said the defender. “But I have to also give big credit to my boys - they gave everything and I think everyone has seen that we tried everything to win that game.”

That said, Holebas is now leading the way for defenders in the Premier League - he has two goals and four assists so far this season - and he's enjoying himself on the pitch.

“It's always good when you score goals,” said the former Roma man. “But I said it a long time ago - I don't care who scores the goals in our team, at least we win the game. It doesn't matter who scores the goals for me, I want the team to win and that's it.

“[But,] it's a big feeling - you've helped the team and you know that you're going to help the team with that goal.”

Ever-competitive, and not afraid to say what he thinks, he was also quick to point out that Watford should have been awarded a penalty for a clear foul on Nathaniel Chalobah - the journalist didn't even have to ask what he thought of the situation, he wanted to raise the issue himself.

“I have to speak for it - that's a clear penalty and I don't know which direction the game would have gone it after that,” said Holebas. “I'm a little bit mad for that.”

Now with two weeks to prepare for the home fixture with Liverpool, Holebas is only looking forward, not back.

“We don't look back - that's a big mistake,” said the full-back. “As we've seen, like against Newcastle, in football anything can happen.

“We just have to be very focused now in doing our job. [We need to] listen to the coach's ideas and be ready for the next game.”
