On-loan midfielder speaks to the media ahead of trip to Charlton
Cameron Brannagan has hailed the atmosphere as ‘buzzing’ in Fleetwood’s dressing room since joining on loan from Liverpool.
Brannagan – who put pen to paper on a deal to keep him until the end of the season at Highbury just last week – has noted that confidence is high in camp after currently being 12 league games unbeaten.
Uwe Rosler’s side will put that record to the test this Saturday when they travel to face Charlton Athletic in Sky Bet League One.
“It’s been a hectic last week or so, but I’ve come in and I’m enjoying it,” said the 20 year-old.
“The lads here are great and it helped that I know Joe Maguire – I’m just looking forward to hopefully performing this weekend [against Charlton].
“As soon as I walked through the changing room you could see that everyone here is buzzing. It helps when everyone around you is really happy, which you need because it will bring the best out of you and allows you to be confident on the pitch.
“When everyone is playing well it helps you when you are on the pitch.”
In his pre-match media conference, Brannagan also gave an insight into what type of player the Cod Army fans can expect to see.”
“I’d say that I’m a box-to-box player, I like to get forward a lot and create things and even pop up in the box and score goals.
“I’m an all-round midfielder who likes to get up and down the pitch.
“I’ve learnt so much from when I was at Liverpool, but now to progress I think that being here is right for me. I just can’t wait to get going.”
With nine senior appearances for the Reds first team from last season, Brannagan will now switch one German manager for another until the end of the season.
“They are similar actually!” said the midfielder when comparing Rosler with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
“With the ways that they want to play and the way the want to press it’s no too different. I spoke to the manager individually and he says that he wants me to press well and get forward and recovering the ball quickly.
