Danish striker reflects on a day with Brentford Community Sports Trust
Lasse Vibe was out in Brentford yesterday, helping our Community Sports Trust with some cooking alongside some young Project 100 participants at Siracusa. Bees Player took the opportunity to ask Lasse about his day and also look ahead to Cardiff on Saturday.
"I think it is [good to come out here like this]," said Lasse. "You get a chance to ask people whether they support Brentford, whether they come to the games, and find out what drives them. You could get some of them to come to the games or get some awareness, maybe get them to talk to their parents about football. I think they all see that football is very positive and is a thing that gathers people. This is part of it, getting the kids to be more involved in and around Brentford."
"Some of our fans are another generation compared to the ones who cooked today, which is very nice as well. They also do a great job of teaching their children and their grandchildren how to almost live and die with Brentford, but it's also up to us players to come out and show some of the kids that we are fun and normal people. I think that will encourage many of them to go to the ground and hopefully not just for the next game but forever."
Dean Smith's side travel to South Wales tomorrow to face Neil Warnock's Cardiff City. Lasse explained how positive he felt ahead of the encounter.
"We've had two games in a couple of days," said Lasse. "We've then got the third one in a week when we play Cardiff on Saturday. When you have three games in a week, you're always going to feel a bit tired but if you let that control your mind then you're not really doing the right thing.
"I think it's just been about coming out and training today, the weather was lovely, feeling fresh. I felt really fresh even though it's the second day after a game, which is normally the tough one. I'm very happy and we've prepared really good and hoepfully we will get another win."
