Huddersfield Town B Team midfielder Brahima Diarra is proud of what he’s already achieved during the 2021/22 season.
Sitting down with #HTTV, Diarra was quick to comment on what he’s made of his start to the current campaign.
“I think I’ve done very well.
“I’ve played three games with the First Team, which was hard, but I think I’ve done well.
“It’s been a great start to the season for me.”
The midfielder spent the majority of pre-season around the First Team and discussed how he found the step up.
“I’m really proud and happy.
“I have to work to stay in the team with them and play with them.
“I have to work hard in training with the B Team, and definitely the First Team when I train with them.
“I have to give my best every time.”
Despite making several appearances for the B Team last season, the 2021/22 season has seen Diarra officially make the step up.
The 18-year-old acknowledged that playing alongside teammates he knows well, particularly compatriots Loick Ayina and Etienne Camara, benefits him on the pitch.
“It’s good because we are friends.
“It’s good on the pitch together because we have a good relationship, so we can speak and not stress.
“If someone misses it’s fine, we can help him.
“That’s our team.”
The B Team are back in action on Tuesday 21 September 2021, when they travel to face Rotherham United in the Central League Cup. It’s a game which Diarra says is a must win for the Young Terriers.
“We have to win.
“It’s not optional.
