Prior to making his loan move to AFC Wimbledon, Forss had made just two substitute appearances in the Championship for the Bees this season. And, his decision to make the move has paid off after making an impressive start to life with the Dons. 

The 20-year-old has scored seven goals since joining the club and now, he has been speaking to the club’s official website, about why he made the move, saying:

“I need to improve upon little things in my game. That’s what I’m here for, to get that experience of playing League football. I’m scoring quite a few goals, and I don’t think I need major work on my game – I just need to keep working hard in training every day.

“I want to get experience under my belt by playing a lot of games for Wimbledon. I will learn a lot from being here. I’ve enjoyed working with the coaching staff. It’s making me a better player and in turn making the team better.

“I came here because I wanted to play first-team football. I felt I was ready to do more than just 20 minutes here and there as a substitute. It was my decision, and Brentford agreed to it.

“I wanted to go out and play – that’s what any footballer wants to do, of course. I wanted to play 90 minutes every week, and when the opportunity to join Wimbledon came up, I grasped it with both hands. This seemed like a fantastic club to come to and progress my career.”
