Charles unworried by Celta drought

Celta Vigo striker Charles insists he is unworried about his recent goal drought, which has seen him fail to score since mid-September.

The Brazilian has netted four times in 12 games this term and was La Segunda’s top scorer last season with 32 from 44 appearances, but has recently found found goals hard to come by.

“I always want to score to help the team but I’m not worried about it. I’m 29 and I know how things go [in football]. I can’t let myself get down.

“I’m a football guy and if I wasn’t then I wouldn’t be here. Everyone has to give a little more, including me,” he told reporters.

The Galicians travel to Anoeta this Saturday to face Real Sociedad, having already won three times on the road this campaign, and Charles is confident of a positive result.

“We’ve won at three difficult places – Real Betis, Malaga and Sevilla – and it shows that away from home we are fine.

“So far we’ve played at a very high level and I hope that on Saturday we see the Celta we all want and that we bring back the three points.”
