McInnes is the right man for City – Adomah

Posted On Friday, 9th November 2012

Ghana  winger Albert Adomah has launched an outspoken defence of manager Derek Mcinnes ahead of Sunday’s crunch Championship showdown with Charlton Athletic.

If McInnes is coming under increasing pressure following a dismal sequence of six straight defeats, Adomah believes the players are to blame for plunging the club into another relegation battle.

While the manager retains the backing of club owner Steve Lansdown and the first-team squad, a growing number of disgruntled supporters are beginning to question the Scot’s tactics and team selection.

But Adomah is having none of it and insists he and his team-mates must shoulder full responsibility for recent results.

In a brutally frank interview, the Ghana international, pictured, posed the question: “Why call for the manager to be sacked when you can sack the players instead?”

He added: “It is a fact of life that managers come under pressure when results are poor and that is beginning to happen to the gaffer here.

“When results don’t go for us, people are always quick to blame the manager.

“But he picks the team he believes is the right one and, once we cross the white line, it is up to the players to do the business.

“He kept us up when we were struggling last season and we have a responsibility to perform for him now.

“I can see that the manager is working hard and the players are all behind him. At the end of the day, it is down to the players.”

Although the buck usually stops with the manager, Adomah feels he is letting McInnes down right now.

He went on: “I have not played at my best for a while now and, at the moment, I feel like a passenger in the team.

“I reckon I’ve done okay in some games but, for me, okay is not good enough.

“I always work hard, but people expect more of me and I have to try and do more.

“I’m no different from anyone else – if I don’t perform, then I don’t deserve to be in the team.”

It may be the case that City can afford to fail against Charlton and still retain their Championship status, but it certainly feels like a must-win contest.

Acknowledging the importance of Sunday’s game, Adomah is urging hard-pressed City fans to rally behind their team once more.

He said: “I think the supporters can see we are working hard and they have been behind us for most of the season.

“The only time I can remember us being booed off was after we lost that late goal to Burnley, which was hard to take.

“I feel they are with us, but we know we have to perform to keep them on side.

“It is hard when the manager picks the right team and then you lose, because the fans will then say it was the wrong team. We need them to stay behind us no matter what team is out there on the pitch.

“I don’t think it is down to the team selection or the system. Whatever players and shape we have gone with, we have scored goals but conceded even more.

“It doesn’t matter how many you score at the one end if you have the worst defensive record in the league.”
