Edgar Davids says he is not feeling under pressure despite Barnet's five-game winless run in the Skrill Premier
It is five games without a win for Barnet in the Skrill Premier but Edgar Davids doesn’t feel under pressure because, as he puts it, “I don’t have a contract, so I don’t have that worry.”
The Bees have dropped to 12th in the table following defeats against Alfreton Town and Macclesfield Town and perhaps more worrying were the performances in those matches.
Barnet, particularly in the 3-1 loss at Alfreton, offered little going forward and looked very insecure in defence.
In an era where managers are sacked after five games without a victory the Dutchman was asked if he is concerned. His response came with a smile.
“Should I be? This is football and it is what it is,” he said. “But I don’t have a contract, so I don’t have that worry.”
Davids returned to the Barnet side against Macclesfield. It was the 40-year-old’s first appearance this season but he played 90 minutes in the 2-1 defeat.
The Dutchman had hoped to remain on the sidelines and had previously said he would only return if the team were not performing.
“You always want to play but you want the team to do better,” he explained.
“They are young lads and they need to grow and perform at a different level every week. That is what they need to do.
“It is difficult. We have had a few back-to-back games and if you don’t get off on the right foot then it is difficult. But I am still confident and not worried.”
While several sides in the division have bolstered their squad with loanees in recent weeks, Barnet have not made any additions since the transfer window closed on August 31.
Davids did not rule out the possibility of new signings but added: “We will see what the situation is and what is available.
“At the moment, everything is a possibility.”
