Sergi Canós has conducted an in-depth interview with The Sunday Times. The 24-year-old spoke to Football Correspondent Jonathan Northcroft at the end of last month for a piece released prior to our match against Everton. He talked about his football journey that has seen him ever-present for Brentford in the Premier League.
Sergi scored Brentford's first-ever Premier League goal, against Arsenal in August. He has three for the season, including away at Leeds United on Sunday. That goal came when he played as a central striker, having played most of the last nine months at wing back.
In the interview, Sergi talked about his family and how his mother moved over to Liverpool when he signed for the Merseyside club and has now set up home there. He discussed his tough start to life in England and how he joined Brentford on loan in 2015 before coming back to The Bees permanently in 2017. Those moves were described as brave and bravery was a theme of the interview.
“We said that we want to attack the league,” said Sergu. “It’s our main target. To perform in the Premier League you have to be brave, believe in yourself. I think we’re doing that well.”
