Maupay opens about his struggle at Everton last season


Brentford striker Maupay opens about his struggle at Everton last season, as he returned to West London after four years.

Maupay struggled to make his mark with the Toffees as he only scored once in his 27 apperances of Everton in 2022/23 season. However, now he has returned to Brentford after 5 years.

Speaking in a press-conference, Maupay discussed about his past and said :-

“I’m not one who is going to find excuses, I just think we as players weren’t good enough – myself included.

“It was pretty clear after a couple of months that we were fighting for our lives, so there was no big expectation apart from saving the club. Then we changed manager, we changed system and there was a lot of stuff going on at the club, so that didn’t help.

“But, at the end of the day, we are on the pitch and we had to do the job. We got it done in the end and it wasn’t pretty and it wasn’t a nice place to be because, on the last game, we needed a win and we scored literally at the end of the game, otherwise we would have been down.

“As a striker, you need confidence, you need to score goals and I didn’t. I scored in my second game at Goodison and I thought it could be a good season. But for multiple reasons, it didn’t work out. I didn’t play much, but when I was on the pitch, I wasn’t the best version of myself

“I’m always honest and tell the truth; last season, I didn’t enjoy myself. I didn’t enjoy my football and life up there was tough. The people around the club, the fans, made my life really difficult.”

Maupay feels nostalgic to return for Brentford this season

Neil Maupay feels nostalgic to return for Brentford in this current campaign. He said :-

“It felt amazing, I can’t lie.

“It was such a relief to be in a place where there are people that care about each other and care about me, in a place I love.

“Having basically the whole stadium singing my name and just seeing them happy I was coming back meant a lot for me. I really love this club, I really love these fans. I said it before, but when I was in France, this club gave me my chance to come over and play football in England and show my talent. Hence I’ll will forever be grateful for this opportunity.”
