Sambou: "I Want To Pick Up Where I Left Off In This Country"

3 February 2022

German born forward hoping to hit the goal trail to safety

New permanent signing, Bassala Sambou, is hoping that he can rediscover the form he showed for Everton’s youth and Under-23s side now that he has relocated to Crewe following spells in Holland and Denmark he is after a place he can call ‘home’.

The German-born forward has been used as an impact substitute in his opening two games for Crewe against Rotherham and Gillingham, but he wants to force his way into David Artell’s starting XI as soon as possible and repay that faith with the goals to help keep us up.

Bass told the club’s official website: “I am happy to be back in England and happy to be at Crewe. I will just give it everything I have got to try and help the team. I’ve been wanting to get back for a while now. I have been away for two and half years and at times it has been difficult with Covid and stuff and not being able to see family, but I knew I would learn a lot about myself and I have definitely grown up in a short space of time.

“There was a lot to deal with and I played in a lot of different systems and it was just part of my learning on the path that I was on. I knew I was learning all the time.

“I am not a young player anymore, I am 24 and at a mature age, and I think I have come to a club where I can enjoy my football again and find a place where I am steady and I can call it home. I did well at Everton before I went to Holland and I want to pick up where I left off.

“I am excited to be back in England and when I spoke with the gaffer (David Artell), he told me about the need for me to score and assist goals and that is what I am aiming to do. I want to score goals to help the team get out of the situation we find ourselves in at the moment.

“I know I have to work hard to get in the team and I know that scoring goals will help me do that.”
