Danny Batth: City result will make us push on!
Newly signed central defender, Danny Batth believes that the recent result against Manchester City shows that Palace mean business, and that they're not a side that can be seen as an 'easy meal.'
Speaking to the Mail Online
Danny Batth spoke about how the morale in the dressing room is high, and how everyone is enjoying their time at Palace.
"Gus has got us all very motivated. We're all very happy and we're all enjoying out football. Obviously being new around here made me nervous, but everyone's been so nice and it's really allowed me to settle down and gel with the team, which I think is evident in how I am playing."
"The result against City is massive. They're a quite a big club. Just a few years ago they were in the struggling, but fast forward a few years and they're a regular in the top four, even the top two. They've got some amazing players. "
"As a kid I really looked up to some of the stars, such as Rio [Ferdinand], and John [Terry]. I've always admired them both as a little boy and try to model myself on the way that they play. It really helps to improve my game."
"We went into the City game with every believe that we could win, which is down to Gus. He's a brilliant coach and I'm glad to be playing under him."
"The lads in the dressing room love it, getting results like this makes us believe in ourselves and hopefully has proven all the doubters wrong. As a player and a club, you want to go out there and win silverware, something which I hope I can fulfill with Palace."
Danny Batth moved to Crystal Palace in 2013 from West Midlands side, Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he has been since 2007 after coming up through their youth ranks. He made a total of 33 appearances for them last term before moving to London, where he has currently played 8 games in all competitions, scoring 2 goals - including a late dramatic equalizer against Blackburn last week.
