Although Yoane Wissa joined Brentford this season, he has already written his name in the history books after his dramatic equalizer in a 3-3 draw against Liverpool in September. He followed it up with another one against Champions League-chasing West Ham to cap a memorable week. He later revealed that his mother cried after the equalizer against Liverpool.
“Against Liverpool, it’s crazy because it was the first time I played at home in the Premier League,” Brentford forward Yoane Wissa said. “When I came on, we were losing 3-2 and then I scored for 3-3. It’s so crazy because all my family was there in the stadium, my Mum cried. It was a very good feeling because we scored three goals against a big team, one of the biggest in the world and we drew. After that, we went to West Ham and in the last minute, I scored and we won. It’s not the same feeling, but I think the better thing was that I scored two goals in two games and hopefully I will score a lot of goals again.”
“My celebration is about being focused every time. Just stay calm, keep working because all the things can happen in your life and you have to keep working. After, you will see. Just live and you can see what’s happening.” he added. “It’s good [the squad at Brentford] because when you change a lot of players, it’s hard to keep working well in a good atmosphere. When I came here, everyone knew each other and you just have to come and speak with everyone.”
