Florian Jozefzoon has been at Brentford for seven months now and he loves the traditional aspect of the club.
The Dutchman has played for European heavyweights PSV Eindhoven and Ajax in his career and has seen his team-mates deal with the demands of winning with style.
Brentford are, obviously, not as big a club as the Dutch giants and, while there is pressure, Jozefzoon knows that the fans and staff are just as happy with a scrappy 1-0 win as they are after a 4-2 triumph.
He said: “It's different because there are high expectations. You have to win but you also must win with nice football.
“Sometimes we won some games 1-0 it wasn't good enough. Here if we win and play badly it's good as we win. Brentford is a smaller club and a traditional club.”
Jozefzoon is currently preparing for the new season and has just returned from the club's training camp in France.
And the way pre-season works in England is drastically different from Holland because of the amount of games, meaning that, during the campaign, there is more focus on recovery.
He added: “It's different. Very different. In Holland, we have one week then go to a training camp, stay one week there, and in the next week it's the competition.
“Here, we've trained two weeks, then go to the training camp and then train again. Pre-season is longer and the competition starts early. It's really different.
“I think recovery is more important. The build up is pre-season and in the season it's about recovering quite well.”
He went on: I like it as you get in shape, you get your form and build your team. When we're at the training camp we're with each other so get to know each other.
“We can talk about other things. When you work with somebody and know them better it's good for the club.”
The move to Brentford is Jozefzoon's first time out of Holland and away from his family but he still is able to maintain regular contact, flying home on his days off.
He said: “I think it's part of the job. Luckily, it's not so far. It's a 50 minute flight. If they want to come they can come. When they are free they will come.
“You've got FaceTime and everything. It's easy to see people. The transfer was fast. They didn't see many games but I hope they'll see more this season.
“All the time when I was free I was travelling back to my family. London is London. I will not get to know everything.
“I know the road to get to the training ground and stadium. It's a nice city to live in. It's no problem.”
