I’M STILL MAN FOR JOB SAYS MORAIS
BARNSLEY manager Jose Morais is adamant he is the right man to lead the Tykes, even if they do suffer relegation to League One.
The Oakwell club went into yesterday’s home game against Brentford under real threat of having their spell in the Championship ended after just two seasons.
Since Morais took charge in February, following Paul Heckingbottom’s departure to Leeds, Barnsley had won just twice, with their desperate run plunging them into the bottom three.
But the 52-year-old Portuguese remains defiant, despite his side’s precarious situation, made all the worse by their 3-0 defeat at Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.
Morais said: “I really believe I am the right man.
“You are not always going to please everyone, but I believe in what I am doing.
“I would not see relegation as a failure because I did and am doing my best.
“I think I am getting the best out of them and I think I am doing important things with them.
“I believe in things I built and what I can build – and I believe in organisation and stability.
“We have to believe we can stay up even though it is not in our hands.”
