Roma full-back Bryan Reynolds – currently on loan at Kortrijk until the end of the season – was recently asked by Het Nieuwsblad to speak about the main differences between Italy and Belgium, as well as his personal aspirations.
“I dream of the Premier League,” said the 20-year-old. “I want to go up against the best ones in the world in the world’s greatest league. First, however, I must grow. But I am patient and will approach this growing process the right way.”
About finding his footing in the Belgian league, Reynolds was very optimistic, “I got comfortable very quickly, but when you don’t play for almost a year you lose confidence and the rhythm of the game.”
“I was very surprised with my first match appearance. I never would have expected to be able to play on that level after such a long period of not playing.”
“Roma and Kortrijk are two completely different worlds,” said Reynolds. “Rome is a big city, with lots of distractions. For a young player like myself a place like Kortrijk is much better.”
“I just need to focus on myself and my career. Also, more people speak English here, so it’s easier for me.”
