Now available to purchase online, Saturday’s Match Programme includes an in-depth interview with Kristoffer Ajer.
Kristoffer’s ability to break the lines from the centre of defence has made him the perfect addition to Brentford’s backline.
With a strong desire to play on the front foot and drive through the thirds, the Norwegian bares the hallmarks of a former number ten.
Kristoffer on his first game of football:
“My dad was the coach, and he had a rule that every player on the pitch had to score at least once, so I scored 26 of our 30 goals! I remember I was refused to play the next matches of the tournament if I could not prove my age. After this, my mother always had my passport with her when I was playing!”
Playing for Celtic:
“To walk out at Celtic Park in front of 60,000 people, to live in Glasgow, to win trophies with my good mates – it was a very, very nice time. It’s absolutely like living in a goldfish bowl! It’s 24/7 football in that city. Half the city really, really like you; half the city hate you!”
And our 4-1 win at Stamford Bridge:
“Chelsea away is the most special day. To win 4-1 away from home against one of the best teams in the world was very nice. It will take a while for the Club to really understand what happened that day. The Chelsea fans left early and the Brentford fans were making so much noise. The traveling fans have made away stadiums feel like home.”
