‘I’m improving game by game’ – Massengo

Han-Noah Massengo looks back on his first season in English football with nine important matches still to come, starting with a trip to Blackburn Rovers this weekend.

The midfielder arrived from Monaco last summer, where he broke through the youth ranks to get a taste of UEFA Champions League football.

But the game in France, compared to the Sky Bet Championship, poses different challenges and Massengo says it has been one big learning curve.

“I’m really enjoying it here, the club all the people here,” he said. “Yes, I’m really happy here. I can say that it’s my second home because my family is here, my sisters, my brother so I’m enjoying it.

“It took time [to get used to] because it’s not really the same than in France, the way it is played. It’s my first professional season so it’s not the same as youth so the intensity and the way the game is going, but yes I think I’m improving game by game and I just have to keep going.”

It’s the next-game mentality which keeps players focused and it’s how 18-year-old Massengo is viewing things between now and the end of the season.

It’s nine big games with City keeping in touching distance of the play-offs, but it’s set to be an intense battle with Blackburn and a host of other clubs, also on the Robins’ heels.

Ahead of the trip to Ewood Park this Saturday, Massengo continued: “This is what we’re trying to do, take it game by game and just not think too much about it, just think about getting a good result game by game.

“We know Blackburn will be a tough team, every team in the Championship is but we have a good team as well. We’re working on the way we are going to play but we know we have a god team and we can do something.

“I think the last two games were good because we were on a bad dynamic and we got two draws. I think we did pretty well and we know we have to improve but we are in a good place and we just have to keep going, working and stick together.”

Blackburn v City (March 14th) kicks off at 3pm.
