In League One, AFC Wimbledon ace Marcus Forss has revealed why he joined the London club on loan from Brentford.

Speaking in the club’s matchday programme, the 20-year-old Finnish striker said: “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.”
