Jack Rodwell played for Sunderland’s League Cup match against Exeter City and the 24 year old English midfielder scored twice and provided 2 assists as he was one of the standout players and helped Sunderland in clinching a convincing 6-3 triumph.
The player who cost Sunderland €10 million back in August of 2014 is hoping that he will continue to score goals, help out his team and perform like he did against Exeter City for the rest of the season.
Sunderland’s Jack Rodwell said: “I haven’t scored as many goals as I would have wanted to for Sunderland, that’s fair. I feel like there have been times when I’ve got into the right position, but for some reason the ball hasn’t quite fallen for me like it did on Tuesday night’’
“I could probably have had a couple more against Exeter, so hopefully that’s a sign of things to come. I’ll keep working hard and trying to get more goals every season. I played well against Swansea City, and felt a bit leggy against Exeter’’
Scoring more goals is what Jack Rodwell wants to do and it’s what he is hoping to accomplish. Sunderland is currently positioned at the bottom of the Premier League as they have only managed to collect 2 points from the opening 4 matches of the season.
During the 2014-15 season of the Premier League, Sunderland finished at the 16th spot and managed to avoid the relegation zone by 3 points but they will have to start collecting points in this recently started season if they want to survive in the top tier league of England but despite this recent slump, Jack Rodwell is excited and wants to help out Sunderland as much as he can.
Sunderland has sustained defeats against Leicester City and Norwich City and had to settle with a draw when facing off with Swansea City and Aston Villa. Those were all of the matches that Sunderland had to play for the month of August but September will be an even tougher month as Dick Advocaat and his players have to face off with Tottenham Hotspur, Bournemouth and Manchester United.
