U's Look to Tame Shrews

Left Back Ricardinho looks for United to bounce back

23 August 2017

Oxford United look to bounce back when they welcome unbeaten Shrewsbury Town to Grenoble Road on Saturday.

The U’s lost their 100% record when losing to Scunthorpe last Saturday and now have to show a positive reaction against the in-form Shrews.

“It definitely hurts to lose” Brazilian left back Ricardinho told us this week.” I think I have learned from each club, each country, and want to win every game so now we have to react against Shrewsbury.”

The former Malmo left back has been a big hit with the fans and is enjoying his time with the U’s, telling us

“I always enjoy my football but I am so happy to be here”

“We have a great team here with great players and it’s a nice atmosphere around the club which I am loving.

“I played in Brazil, Sweden and Azerbaijan and I think this league is similar to the top league in many countries.  The organisation, the facilities and the infrastructure. You look at the pitches, the training grounds, the science and so on.  What I am seeing here would be the envy of a lot of clubs in the top league back in Brazil. It has been really impressive.”
