Middlesbrough defender Fabio da Silva believes that his team has a great chance of winning promotion back to the Premier League this season.
He said that it was a disappointment for the players to have been relegated and that they are looking forward to changing that.
He said that the players were quite good at the back and it was up front that things did not function well. He believes that the manager knows that and that he will be looking for ways to strengthen the attacking options of the team.
Fabio da Silva said that they already have a good team and that if they want to win promotion back, they will need to keep all the players together. He said that Newcastle United showed the way last season and that they should be looking to do the same.
He believes that life in the championship will not be easy and that they will need to stick together if they want to win promotion back. Fabio da Silva said that the players should take responsibility for what happened last season and it is up to them to fix it by wining promotion.
He admitted that there are some other good teams in the Championship and that it will be a tough fight but they are ready for it.
Personally, Fabio da Silva said that he wants to play more games. He said that he had been hindered by injuries last season, but he wants things to change. He said that he will be preparing himself well this season and that he is determined to play the majority of games for the team.
He said that they have an exciting new manager at the head of the team and that he believes that the fans will support the team as always.
