KHAYATI FINDING A WAY AT ALBION
STRIKER Nasser El Khayati has urged the Burton fans to be patient after his slow start to life in England.
The 26-year-old Dutch forward came off the bench to score a late winner – his second goal for the club – as the league leaders beat Southend 2-1 on Wednesday.
The former PSV youth graduate arrived in the January transfer window, but has found his chances with the Brewers limited so far.
“On the pitch I need some more time, I’m making an impact when I can,” he said. “I try to be a part of it, but I also wait for my chances and I respect the choices of the gaffer, of course.
“I try in all the minutes I play to do something. Sometimes it goes well, sometimes it goes wrong – I think against Southend it was on the good side!
“Life is good here. It’s almost the same as Holland – the weather as well!
“If I’m on the ball I do some good things maybe, but what if I don’t have the ball? I need to get used to defending because it’s a great difference with Holland. I have to work on this if I want to succeed in England.”
GOAL: Nasser El Khayati
