Oztumer - "I Just Want to Help the Team Win"

Saddlers attacker Erhun Oztumer has credited the club for his growth as a player, and is happy to play wherever the manager needs him to.
Walsall attacker Erhun Oztumer has spoken to the local press as he and his teammates continue to prepare for next weekend's Emirates FA Cup - First Round clash with Newport County, and has credited the club with his growth as a player.

Erhun, who was speaking via the Express & Star, has scored twenty-two goals in sixty-three first-team appearances and admits that although he prefers the central attacking role, he has grown as a man as he learns to play in a variety of positions, he said; "It’s good to play in different positions. I just want to help the team win wherever the gaffer puts me. My favourite position is centre-attacking mid, a no.10.

"But it’s always good to play in different positions – striker, left, right, centre-mid. The gaffer trusts me in different positions so it’s a good trait to have. I feel like I’m learning all the time and I’ve grown as a man. I’ve scored more goals than I have before. And I feel like a big part of the club so I’m really enjoying it."
