David Titov feeling 'positive' ahead of Inter Milan challenge

Fullback discusses Italy tour and looks ahead to final match on Wednesday

24 October 2017

Brentford B fullback David Titov is looking forward to a strong display from the squad when they face Inter Milan on Wednesday. The 17-year-old spoke to iFollow about his time on tour and how he is preparing for the final match in Italy.

"It's been good," said David, speaking after training on Monday afternoon. 'We've had some good challenges playing Atalanta and AC Milan. They are good teams and have different styles of play so it has been good to see what they are about and how they play.

"Being a defender, it's clear that they are good attacking teams. You've always got to be aware of how they move and what is around you. They move, they stick to their style of play and they pass it around quickly and that means you have to be aware of the danger they can cause."

Asked about what David has learned from tours like this one, he said: "It's good to develop my game, so if I ever come across these different styles again then I know what to expect, how to play around it and how to beat my opponent.

"We get a lot of time to relax and chill with each other, then also get some good recovery. The pool, the gym, everything around us is designed to help us get better and prepare for each game, even during the time we aren't playing football."

The B squad took a trip to the San Siro on Sunday to watch AC Milan play Genoa in Serie A. David clearly enjoyed his experience there.

"It was really good," he said. "I don't get to see those kind of teams in other countries a lot and it's a chance to see why they are the best teams around."

Kevin O'Connor's squad play Inter Milan on Wednesday afternoon, David expects The Bees to give a good performance.

"Having played Atalanta, and seeing the standard they set, they are one of the best teams around. I think we dealt with them well, took that on to AC Milan and showed what we can do. I'm positive about this Inter Milan game. We should win, we know what to expect. Now we just have to perform."
