Guy: 'I'm Just A Striker'
NEW Argyle signing Gut Madjo is, in his own words, “just a striker”, which is probably exactly what Pilgrims’ manager Carl Fletcher wants to hear.The 28-year-old Cameroonian Under-23 international made his Argyle debut on a month’s emergency loan as a second-half substitute in the 0-0 Devon derby draw against Torquay at Plainmoor.
That came less than 24 hours after he learnt that he was to make a temporary move from the Pilgrims’ npower League 2 rivals Aldershot.
“I was having dinner with my missus at 6pm [on Friday] when I found out,” he said, after the game.
“I had to go back home, collect some stuff I needed for today, then go to the club and sign some paperwork, then be on my way.
“I finally got here past midnight and met the lads earlier today. I am delighted to be here.
“I am delighted because we got a decent point, away in a derby. When you play away from home and get a point, it is like a win.
“My strength is my getting the ball in to my body; I pass it wide and move into the box, which is where you score goals. I’m just a striker.
“I didn’t hold the ball up today because I felt still a bit heavy from the travelling yesterday and I didn’t sleep that much, so I was tired.
“I think I will get to my game soon and then you will see more of me.”
Guy is slated to stay at Home Park until October 6 as cover for fellow forwards Rhys Griffiths, Nick Chadwick and Paris Cowan-Hall, all of who have suffered with injury this season, which means he will have plenty of time to deliver the goals for which he has been brought in.
“I just go out and try to enjoy myself,” he said. “If a chance comes, I’ll take it; if I miss it, I know another chance will come.”
Guy has played in China and Albania, as well as his native Cameroon, and a clutch of English clubs.
After a decent second half of last season with Aldershot, Guy has failed to force his way into the Shots’ regular starting line-up this term
“I’ve been around a bit,” he said. “I have got a bit of experience.
“I know what I want in my life. It’s when you don’t know what you want that you feel bored. So, wherever I go, I have to adapt and do what I have to do for the team. That’s me.
“As long as I have running in my legs, I will keep going. I just need to start scoring some goals like I did last season.
“I need to get that, minute after minute. I have not been playing since the start of the season, so I feel like, as soon as get some minutes, I will get some confidence from there.
“You don’t get any confidence sitting on the bench or in the stand.
“Every Saturday or Tuesday, when you are out there on the pitch minute after minute – that’s where you pick it up.”
