Massengo outlines his City ambition

Han-Noah Massengo is embarking on the start of a new chapter in his young career but already has his sights set on his end target.

For 18-year-old Massengo, his aim is to help take Bristol City to the Premier League and he hopes his experience in the UEFA Champions League will play its part.

He featured a handful of times in Europe’s largest club competition with AS Monaco last season and he now gets ready to focus on the challenges of the Sky Bet Championship.

“I feel happy to be here,” Massengo told the club website. “I think it’s a good project and I want to be a part of this project, so I’m very happy.

“It’s a very good experience, the Champions League has helped me to see the top as a football player. Every player in the Champions League wants to play there again and again because it is the top [level].”

“I want the team and I hope for Bristol City fans that we will be a Premier League club next season. It must be our ambition.” 

Massengo was in the crowd at Ashton Gate at the weekend when City kicked off the new campaign and he liked what he saw, both on and off the pitch.

And he’s now excited to get going in his new surroundings.

“It’s special because there are a lot of fans, there’s a good atmosphere, the pitch is good and I think this is a good place to be,” he said.

“The Championship is a tough league with a lot of fight but players in this league play good football. I know it is spectacular, so it is exciting.”
