Hugo Rodallega Targets Happiness

Hugo Rodallega Targets Happiness


Wigan Athletic striker Hugo Rodallega is bang on form as the Latics head into the hectic Christmas and New Year period of the season and the Colombia international reckons he is bang on course to finish the season on the goals target he set himself back in the summer.

Speaking to the Independent Hugo revealed that he believes in targets and he feels that it drives you on, he is pleased that the one he set himself in summer is realistic, he says: 'To become a better player you should always set yourself targets and I do that. I do it with my close friends and family'

'This season I thought 15. I suppose I have six now and there is half a season to go so it's still a realistic target.'


Looking back at last Saturday the 23 year old says he is pleased that the team managed to rid themselves of what he called the 'shameful performance` at Spurs a week earlier and even though he suffered from a bad knock to the head he still continued in the game against Sunderland and went on to score what proved to be the winning goal, he continued: 'We knew we had to rid ourselves of that bitter memory of the shameful defeat to Tottenham'

'I felt I was on the edge of losing consciousness at one stage, the physio said to the gaffer that he was going to have to make a change but I said, 'No, I want to carry on'. I never want to leave a game.'


A good decision to stay on the pitch then, Hugo`s exquisitely taken goal giving the Latics all the points in a close encounter against Sunderland who are along with Wigan, one of a bunch of clubs battling for mid-table safety.

Another of those clutch of clubs are todays opponents Birmingham City and Hugo would love to keep his immediate target of 15 goals on track by scoring again, but when questioned about his long term targets and where he seems himself in the future the likeable Colombian says that he is happy at Wigan but also ambitious, Hugo concluded: 'Wigan are the club that brought me here and from day one I've been treated really well'

'My desire is to leave my mark on Wigan. But footballers are always ambitious and if a bigger club was to come in you have to be honest and take the situation as it happens. As an individual you think of your own future.'
