Andre Green… Remember him?

Recommended Posts


Andre Green says he has no regrets over his decision to leave Sheffield Wednesday. The winger departed the League One club six months into an 18-month deal at Hillsborough last August, completing a surprise move to Slovakian champions Slovan Bratislava. 

The 23-year-old is enjoying his football again and has impressed for Slovan this season. He has plundered 14 goals, including strikes against Greek sides Olympiakos and PAOK Salonika in the Europa League and Europa Conference League.

Green, who now regards himself as a striker, said: “This path that I’m on is an experience. I’ve got more experience than most English players of my age now because I’ve taken this step.

“Many would say, ‘Why have you done this?’ I think that I have my own reasons: I believe in myself and want to prove that I can do it. I’ve played 40 games in a season for the first time in my career and I’m in a great routine.

“We’ve only lost once this season, but we are expected to win every game. That’s new to me and it’s made me so much stronger.

On why he chose Slavan, Green told The Athletic : “The appeal of European football was just too good to turn down and to settle straight away was a big thing. I made it into the team of the week in my first game. 

"The second game I scored, in Europe (against Olympiakos), then I got a few man of the match awards. I know football is about statistics. Every game I go into, I want to score and get my numbers up so people can see what I’m doing.

“I know I should really have 20 goals already this season because I’ve left a few out there, but I’m working on that.

“I haven’t ‘dropped down’ (by coming to Slovakia to play), I’ve just moved across. I’m playing at a high level in Europe and I needed to do this for myself and my career. Coming over here has really opened my mind up to how European football is played. It’s been really beneficial.

“I want to continue learning about myself and, whatever comes next, I know I will be ready.”
