Brighton and Hove Albion’s free scoring striker Glenn Murray has told The Argus that he always believed that he would rack up plenty of goals this season.
Glenn Murray revealed that he was confident in his ability to put the ball in the back of the net and joined Brighton because of the team’s style of play and because they can carve out plenty of chances for him.
The former Bournemouth striker added that the move was not just because of “convenience” but it was a carefully thought out decision that he made because of the group of attacking players and because of their near-miss on promotion last season.
The 33-year-old veteran forward has surpassed the 20 goal mark in the league this season and his tally of 21 strikes puts him level in third place (with Tammy Abraham) in the Championship top scorer list – only Chris Wood and Dwight Gayle are ahead of him.
“It was the aim.
“I’ve said all along, I sat down and it wasn’t a move of convenience.
“It was a move based on what the group had achieved last year, gone so close to doing, and the wingers we’ve got and the forward players we’ve got.
“We can create chances in abundance.
“I believed this could happen.
“You never know whether you are going to stay injury-free.
“There are lots of ifs and buts.”
