Yoane Wissa has taken part in an in-depth interview with the Sky Sports website. As part of the preparations for Brentford's Boxing Day match, Wissa spoke to reporter Charlotte Marsh. Brentford play Brighton and Hove Albion today, Boxing Day, Sunday 26 December, in a match that will kick-off at 8pm and is to be broadcast live by Sky Sports.
Wissa discussed his time with Brentford so far. He arrived from French Ligue 1 side Football Club Lorient-Bretagne Sud, better known as FC Lorient, in the summer. He scored in consecutive Premier League games against Liverpool and West Ham United with late goals giving The Bees a draw and win in those games. Wissa has played 11 games for Brentford so far in all competitions, scoring five goals.
"It was the right time because firstly, the Premier League is a big dream and it is a step up for me," said Wissa, explaining why he moved to West London. "I've have to go step by step but I think it is the best thing for me, I spoke with Thomas Frank a lot of times. I had to make a choice, and I think it was the best move for me. I have to keep working well.
"I watched since I was maybe seven. I two older brothers and they watched the Premier League. For everyone, it is the dream. There are a lot of good players, good teams and for me, I am living the dream."
In the interview, Wissa explains that his Mum was in the crowd when he scored a late equaliser to earn Brentford a draw against Liverpool. He also talks about what it is like to be part of the Brentford squad. Read the full interview here.
