Scott Hogan doesn't care who is in the Championship and believes there are no 'big club's to fear as the only one that is to him is Manchester United.
The Brentford striker is heading into the start of the season for the first time in two years after two anterior cruciate ligament injuries.
While Bees fans are excited by prospects of lining up against Newcastle United and former European champions Aston Villa, Hogan just sees them as teams standing in his and Brentford's way of reaching the Premier League.
He said: “No club is big to me. One club is big to me and that is Man United. The rest are not big at all. I don't care about any other club.
“They're normal teams. Unless we play Man United away it's a different matter. Otherwise, they're normal teams.”
Hogan has been treated with care during pre-season with the primary goal to allow him to play 90 minutes of every game this campaign.
He added: “There've been times I've had a niggle and they've said I didn't need to train as I've been ahead of where I should be.
“Come the first game of the season, I'll be in shape to play 90 minutes every game. I know if I play I'll score goals.”
