Having struggled for regular minutes at Fulham this season, Stefan Johansen left the Cottagers and joined West Bromwich Albion on loan in the winter market.
His temporary deal is until the end of the season and he’s made more starts for the Baggies (five) in the league than he had with the Cottagers (four starts in the league) this term.
The 28-year-old sat down for an interview with Norway’s TV2 and explained that a switch to The Hawthorns has helped him get a smile back on his face.
“I’ve got the smile back and enjoy the football. It was a heavy period at the end of December,” Johansen explained.
The former Celtic man’s contract at Craven Cottage will expire after the end of the season, but he is now fully focused on helping his current side achieve promotion to the Premier League.
“I want to help West Brom come to the Premier League, so I, the family and the agent will get an evaluation of what’s going on next year. Then we find the best solution,” he said.
West Brom are currently fourth in the table with 67 points after 38 games, trailing second placed Norwich City by seven points. Despite the current position in the table, they sacked their manager Darren Moore earlier this month.
Even though the Norway international has been at the club for a short period, he revealed there has been a chaos at West Brom following Moore’s exit.
“I didn’t know the club so well that I know the reason, so I can’t comment on that. It’s been chaotic. I’ll be honest and say it. There has been a lot to deal with,” the midfielder added.
