Gabriel Obertan ‘If people doubt me it’s their problem’

6 years ago

In a rare interview coinciding with a return to the first team picture, Gabriel Obertan says that he has doubted himself but on reflection it could be a lot worse.

[intlink id=”48962″ type=”post”]Alan Pardew has already confirmed that Obertan will start[/intlink]¬†against Leicester tomorrow and the winger says that if people doubt him then that is their problem.

The Newcastle manager has already said in advance of tomorrow’s clash that Obertan is a confidence player, so let’s hope his confidence is high against Leicester…

Still trying to make a name for myself;

“I am turning things around but it gets to you, especially when it’s the first time it really happens and you feel left out.

“I’m still at a great club, I’m still working hard and still trying to make a name for myself.”

Doubting yourself;

“You start doubting but then you take a minute to breathe and realise that it could be a lot worse.

“If people doubt you, that is their problem.

“As long as you believe you can do it, and you know what you did and you can do it again, it will go your way at some point if you work hard.”
