Not only is he wowing everyone with his skills on the pitch, but Moussa Dembele comes across as a thoroughly nice chap in interviews too. Following his brace which ensured all three points for Fulham on Saturday, there are interviews with our new striker in the Daily Star and on the Offal.

In the Star Dembele speaks about Bobby’s injury and how it’ll be a struggle without him, but he seems willing and eager to play, even if it means playing out of position while Bobby’s away;

I can play in that position. I wouldn’t say it is my favourite, but I can play there.
My favourite position is in midfield, either just behind the striker or on the wings. Wherever the  manager plays me, I will do my best.

But it’s what he said about Saturday’s game that made me smile;

It was not an easy game against Wolves but you could see we were the better team. We just had to finish it and thankfully we did. It’s normal in football to have a battle and our match against Blackpool was a similar game – they were both very physical matches.

It was a good game on Saturday and it was important for us to keep playing our own game. We have the players to play nice football. All the big teams play their football and the other teams have to adapt – we should also do that.

Nice football. I like the sound of that.
