With Brighton & Hove Albion doing so well in the Premier League, few would expect drama in the dressing room, as Graham Potter’s side currently sit ninth in the table.
They were booed off against Leeds United, which ended in a 0-0 draw, and the manager wasn’t entirely sure why that was the case, but the club will carry on doing what they do regardless, and eventually start scoring again.
One man key to their good form this season as been Leandro Trossard, who was bought in 2019 from KRC Genk for around £18m.
He’s since broken into the Belgium national team, and has scored three goals and picked up one assist in 13 appearances this season, including finding the back of the net in key fixtures such as the away draw to Liverpool and the home game against Newcastle United.
The player gave a lengthy interview to HLN, where he discussed a variety of matters, ranging from his temper to his future.
On the former, he said: “I’m a pretty calm person in general, but on the field I’m a winner. I want to win everything, and I will always say my thoughts. I will never fall out with a teammate, mind you. Occasionally, you just get angry, and throw a shoe. Not at a player, but at a box in the middle of the dressing room”.
And for the latter: “I’m happy at Brighton. I’m just getting into football. I like the philosophy. I can’t guess at the moment how the season will end and how good my performances will remain. If I keep that constant, of course, you never know.
“Brighton did everything they could to get me here. That the manager came to Tubize specifically for an interview gave me an extra good feeling. I knew I would get my chance here”.
