Bouazza: I'm happy at Millwall

HAMER Bouazza says Millwall manager Kenny Jackett has assured him of his importance to the club since the winger suggested he was unhappy with the Lions.

The 27-year-old gave an interview to an Algerian newspaper last month in which he spoke of his desire to leave SE16 at the end of the season.

But Bouazza, who has started in Millwall's last three matches, says there are no major issues between himself and the club.

Asked whether his comments were borne out of frustration, he told the club's official website:

"When you're not playing you get a little frustrated. The gaffer was there to talk to me all the time and he wants to keep me here.

"He said he needs me here and I'm happy to be at the club. I get on with the lads, the gaffer and the staff really well. There's no problem. Everyone's happy."

Bouazza scored the first of the Lions' three goals at Peterborough in midweek, and the former Fulham star felt he had been due a goal for a while now.

"I knew I would score because I'd hit the bar in the last two games," he added. "I could feel it. It was a great ball from James Henry and I was there at the back stick. I was really pleased with it.

"All of the lads did well. We played well as a unit. We went to Peterborough looking for three points – we got them, and hopefully we can carry on like that for the rest of the season.

"We want to get the maximum amount of points that we can. The fans were really good at Peterborough and we need them as well, especially at home as we're not doing so well at the moment.

"We don't deserve to be in this place [in the league]. We should be up the table, in the top ten."
