Those two caps were earned during the previous campaign and
Gordinho has been forced to watch from the sidelines throughout the 2014/15
season. However, he is just 20-years-old and feels that there is still ample
opportunity to win over the favour of coach Stuart Baxter
"As a kid you only imagine being where I am now. So, I
am not worried about my lack of game time," Gordinho told the Daily
The reality is that Chiefs do have a formidable defensive
unit, which is why the team has been so difficult to beat throughout this
Gordinho is not in the least bit perturbed by that though
and he is more than prepared to bide his time when the team is doing so well.
“We have four central defenders in the team and we can't all
play at the same time,” added Gordinho.
“It is part of the game - only 11 players can play. The
other ones have to sit it out on the bench. Some don't even go with the team. I
just want to prove that I am an ultimate professional.
“Sometimes you need to be patient if you want to achieve
everything you yearn for. At my age I am just happy to be learning from these
great guys, who have all been superb,” he said.
