Catching up with David Ferreira
What is your mental outlook right now?
Ferreira: At the beginning, I was sad I wasn’t on the field. I was not with the team, but I was being strong, trying not to take the negative stuff and just focusing on the comeback because that’s what was best for the team.
How do you feel knowing the fans expect big things from you once you do return?
Ferreira: I’m calm. I know the expectations are big. People have communicated that to me -- that the fans are waiting for me. I have to first take care of what I have to do in my rehab. They’re waiting for me to come back and that’s what I’m working for, David Ferreira to come back and help the team.
How tough has it been for you to watch this team struggle over the last month?
Ferreira: It’s hard. I suffer watching the guys struggle. To overcome that, we need to work, we need to focus to get the results we need to get.
