Totton Town defender Aaron Froukhians has hit back at all his critics, and has laughed off claims that he is 'too slow' when it comes down to playing against the bigger and better sides.

Being nick named 'the snail' and with the City Central game coming up in two weeks, many believe Aaron may struggle to come to terms with Centrals pace and penetration in attack.

"Yes, being honest i do lack a little pace now" admitted Aaron in today's interview. Aaron was well known for his blistering pace in his younger years, but today claims he is a better player now. "i have far more intelligence, technically I'm still OK and i believe i am a very different player now, a better player perhaps",he went on to say "i need to work on my fitness and sharpness but I'm getting better with every game i feel, hey Cannavaro for Italy has no pace and he is one of the finest defenders on the planet"

Aaron also backed his team-mates in defence and said they have what it takes in the big matches. "since we started to play 4-4-2, we are really starting to gel well in defence, i have developed a good understanding with Luke Charles and Sam Payne has done very well giving us more solidity and aerial ability" Aaron also had this to say about right back Simon Cook "the lad, like myself has not played many matches in the last few years but has come in and done himself and the team proud, he still need more sharpness, but he is getting better with every match and has been Mr reliable for us"

Aaron also said he and the rest of the back four have nothing to prove going into the Central match. "Yes, its going to be a real test for us, by a mile our hardest match of the season, but we know we can raise our game when required. It will be hard for them as well and we will do our up most to deny them time and space, I'm backing the lads to rise to the occasion"
