Ola Aina has attributed Fulham’s relegation from the Premier League to the absence of the club fans.
Fulham were one of three teams that got relegated from the English top-flight. Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion were the two other teams that went down.
And Aina, who was on loan from Torino, believes the presence of the fans would have come in handy in certain games.
“I think it’s affected most teams,” Aina said on the club’s website fulhamfc.com. “You look at Sheffield United, last year they were flying, and then this season you see what having no fans does.

“I think it’s affected a lot of teams, and we’re one of those. When we needed fans in the stadium for certain games, there are results that might have gone in our favour if they were there maybe.
“It has played a part in our season, I think, it has affected us. But we can’t be making excuses, it is what it is, we didn’t manage to stay up, but it would have been lovely for the fans to have been in the stadium this season.
“I’d just like to say thank you to them for all the support you’ve given me and the team. We wish you’d been with us the whole season, but it was good to have some of you back at the last game.”
And when asked if he enjoyed his time at the club:”I’ve loved it,” he replied. “I get asked this question all the time by a lot of people, and even though we’ve been relegated, I’ve loved every minute of this season.
“I’ve loved the challenge, the coaching staff, my teammates, and I’ve loved the Club as well. I’ve loved this Club, it’s a very nice club.
“The Club has become a part of me, and a part of all the other loan players, and I think you can see that.
“Even though we’re here on loan, we’re all part of the same fight. I really think the loan boys have taken up the challenge.
“Off the pitch we’ve always been very close with each other. We like each other’s company, so it’s been a really good group.
“We did really care about this season and how we did. It went wrong, but trust me, we really did care.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
