FG spoke to St Joseph’s defender Francisco Cano about yesterday’s win against Lincoln, life at his new club and more.
Cano reflected on St Joseph’s 1-0 win over Lincoln Red Imps thanks to a second-half goal from Domingo Ferrer Lopez, “The team is very happy with the result because it was a very important game for us and the team worked very well for yesterday’s victory.”
We asked Fran how yesterday’s win will motivate his side in the second round of the Championship Group, “Yesterday’s victory gives us even more motivation to continue fighting for our goal. Beating our direct rival gives us even more motivation to face the final stretch of the league with enthusiasm and strength to keep fighting.”
The 28-year old joined St Joseph’s last summer from Gibraltar Phoenix – we asked Cano how he’s found it at Saints, “The truth is that since I joined St Joseph, they welcomed me very well and I am very happy here. I am enjoying a good spell at the moment and I want to continue contributing and helping the team in every way possible.”
Cano is largely known for his time at Glacis United before joining Phoenix in January 2018, then Saints in the summer of 2019 – we asked how it feels playing in such a competitive team with experienced players such as Juanfri, Pecci and so on, – “I feel very good and comfortable. I always like to play in a team that competes for everything like St Joseph’s and with players of that level, you always learn from them by having them by the side.”
