Millwall midfielder Shane Ferguson has said he wants to return to Millwall with the “bragging rights” over his teammates in an interview with BBC Sport.
Ferguson and defender Conor McLaughlin are taking on their Millwall teammates Aiden O’Brien and Shaun Williams who play for the Republic of Ireland. The two sides meet for a friendly this coming week and Ferguson has said that the banter between the Millwall quartet has already started.
He spoke to the BBC “It’s big, we are all looking forward to the game it will be a good atmosphere at the Aviva. I’ve got a few mates on the that team as well. At Millwall, Aiden O’Brien and Shaun Williams are there and have stated the slating already so hopefully we can send them back quiet, it will be good to see them but hopefully we will be one’s laughing after the game.
Ferguson was also asked about the form of his national side who have struggled for results in their Nations League campaign but have had a lot of positive performances. “we are playing great, maybe a bit of luck has not gone our way, we are working really hard on it. We need to get back to being a hard team to beat.”
Northern Ireland are yet to gain a single point in League B, Group 3 losing all three games so far and will be relegated if they fail to beat Austria at the weekend. The Republic are also in a danger of relegation from Group B after only taking one point from their three games and they face Denmark who they drew 0-0 with at the Aviva in October.
