Cameroonian star Bryan Mbeumo recently spoke of the ups and downs of life in the Premier League as he continues to shine with Brentford.
Mbeumo joined the club four years ago and steadily cemented his place in the club’s starting XI. Now a staple in Thomas Frank’s side, Mbeumo assumed the attacking leadership role in the absence of Ivan Toney who is currently suspended for breaching betting rules.
That said, Mbeumo recently spoke of life as a Premier League player and that it took him some time to adapt to his surroundings.
“There have been some ups and downs,” Mbeumo told the Evening Standard.
“My agent told me about this project when I was at Troyes in 2019.
The staff travelled to see me in France and I liked the project. It was tough. Even if I had a good English level at school, people speak faster in the actual country. It took time to adapt.
“I had a great first season here. The second was a bit of a down. The third was better, and then last season made me a better player.”
