- Brahima Diarra determined to keep improving his game
- Midfielder impressed against Sheffield Wednesday with Town B
- Young Frenchman showcased his talent in two positions
Huddersfield Town Under-19 midfielder Brahima Diarra believes he has much more still to give, despite a superb performance against Sheffield Wednesday with the B Team on Wednesday.
17-year-old Diarra joined the club in the summer of 2019 and has since made appearances for the First Team in pre-season, B Team, Under-19s and Under-17s. Most recently, he put in an impressive performance at Canalside on Wednesday afternoon, picking up an eye-catching assist in the process.
The French youngster was primarily deployed in central midfield in the 3-0 victory, but also showed he was comfortable at right-back – and was pleased with his personal performance after the team’s victory.
"I feel that I played well today, which is important because every game is such a huge opportunity that I must be ready for.
"Something I always try to do is to play with a high intensity because this is something the First Team do, so I try to run every time - because I know the Head Coach is watching the GPS!”
Town’s Head Coach Carlos Corberan watched the B Team for the full 90 minutes, something that Diarra was keen not to let affect him.
"If Carlos is there or not, I will always give 100%, it changes nothing about my performance. I just continue to play the same way I play every game.
"If there's talk of going to training with the First Team, or to travel with them in the squad, I won’t ever let it affect my game.
"However, I know that if I do get an opportunity with the First Team, then I am ready, because I can play their style of football well. It’s how we play in the Academy."
Despite his superb performance against Sheffield Wednesday, Diarra was quick to admit that he is always eager to keep improving his game and keep hitting targets.
"My aim now is to keep looking for a few more goals and assists, because for an attacking midfielder you need to have statistics. I know it will help me continue my development."
