LOPEZ LOVING LIFE AT BARNET

11 March 2013

Saturday's man of the match is loving his time at Underhill

Dani Lopez is thoroughly enjoying his time at Barnet and if the opportunity arose he would gladly extend his loan until the end of the season.

Lopez, who joined the club on loan last month, put Morecambe to the sword on Saturday scoring a hat-trick to help the Bees to a 4-1 at Underhill.

Reflecting on the win the 27-year-old admitted he was pleased to get the goals but stated that the most important thing was the three points.

“I am very happy that we got the three points and that I scored three goals,” said Lopez. “I worked very hard in the week and I feel very strong.

“Like I said it is good to score three goals but the most important thing is that the team got the win."

Saturday’s win means the Bees now sit 18th in Npower League Two and a win against Oxford United on Tuesday could see them move seven points away from bottom side Plymouth Argyle.

The Spaniard is likely to lead the line again for Edgar Davids’ side and following his first hat-trick in English football he revealed he would happily extend his stay at Underhill.

“I have scored a couple hat-tricks in Spain but never in England, it is my first match ball here and I got all of the players to sign it.

“I am really enjoying my time at Barnet and I would be very happy to stay at the club until the end of the season. 

Despite three vital goals which ultimately led to victory head-coach Davids insisted there is still more to come from the on loan Stevenage forward.

“I was pleased with the second half but not so much with the first half. In the first half he came too deep and the link ups were not tight. 

“There were words exchanged at half time but Dani Lopez, even though for me he didn’t play a brilliant game, has the extra quality to pull a rabbit out of the hat. That is the quality he has.”
