Dundee veteran Charlie Adam has declared that if he can get the Dens Park club promoted to the Premiership this season it would be the biggest achievement of his career.
Adam joined Dundee before the start of the season, having supported the club as a youngster. Having won trophies at Rangers and a move to Liverpool, Adam feels that helping Dundee back to the Premiership would top all that. As it stands, they currently sit fourth in the table, in the promotion play-off places.
“What it means”
“If I can manage to get this club back into the Premiership it’ll be the biggest thing I’ve achieved in my career, because of what it means as a supporter” he said (FourFourTwo magazine, March 2021, p. 84).
Adam also disclosed that he only agreed to join Dundee if he felt he still had something to offer the club, and wasn’t coming up for ‘one last hurrah’ as he puts it.
“I felt good”
“It’s the club I supported, growing up. I always thought about playing here, but only if I could contribute. I was 34, I could still compete, and I felt good, I didn’t want to come at 36 or 37, with my career nearly over and everybody thinking it was the last hurrah” Adam revealed.
The player has certainly contributed so far. In 18 games for Dundee, he has scored seven goals and his nine assists. That is a record that he can be pleased with, but he might well be wanting to achieve more.
Dundee’s recent fixtures have been disrupted by weather, but they are set to face second placed Dunfermline tomorrow in a vital Championship encounter.
A good performance from Adam could help Dundee pick up what would be a key three points in the battle for the play-off places.
