Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

JAC­QUES MAGHOMA has thanked Sh­effield Wed­nes­day boss Stu­art Gray for giv­ing him a kick up the arse.

The 27-year-old winger (above) was axed by Gray for five matches in Novem­ber and De­cem­ber – but re­turned to the side to make an im­pact.

The DR Congo in­ter­na­tional said: “I had a con­ver­sa­tion with the man­ager. What was said will stay be­tween us, but we had a pos­i­tive chat.

“You can speak to him about any­thing. We get on well and he is there to help me.

“If I’m not play­ing at my best he will tell me, which is im­por­tant.

“He gave me a kick up the back­side.

“I knew my­self I was maybe not play­ing to the best of my abil­ity.

“Th­ese things hap­pen at times when you play a lot of games, and you maybe drop form and tired­ness kicks in.

“I worked hard in train­ing to get back to my best.”
