After firing blanks in his first two games for La Liga strugglers, Malaga, Super Eagles striker, Brown Ideye, believes his team’s midfielders are his bane.
Ideye moved to the Spanish top flight from China in January but has failed to hit the ground running.
Malaga lost by another slim 1-0 scoreline over the weekend against Athletico Madrid, with the Nigerian blaming the club’s lack of creative force, though promised to soon deliver the goods.
“It’s been difficult to get the goals because we don’t have a creative midfielder who can give a goal pass,” the former West Brom star told AOIFootball on Tuesday.
“But I’m confident we can overcome these challenges in our next games and the goals will start coming.”
Ideye further insisted that he is confident his side can beat the drop zone despite being on the foot of the table with only 13 points.
“It’s unfortunate the situation we find ourselves in right now.
“But with hard work on and off the pitch, I believe we can survive relegation, it will be difficult but also very possible.”
Malaga is currently 20th on the log with 13 points from 23 games and will need to start winning soon if they are to remain in the top flight next season.
