Andre Green ‘looking forward to the future’ with the Addicks

Charlton’s latest signing, Andre Green, sat down for his first interview with Valley Pass, detailing his ambitions, strengths and his first impressions of playing for the Addicks. 

The winger arrived on loan from Aston Villa as Charlton’s first signing of the January transfer window, but despite his short time here so far, the 21-year-old has already gelled with his new teammates.

“I think I’ve settled in quite quickly," he explained.

"I met all the lads properly at the back end of last week before the game. It seems like a great club! I'm enjoying it and I'm looking forward to the future.

"Everyone seems together. There’s a few injuries so everyone’s a bit here, there and everywhere, but you can tell the boys are a together group and that just makes it a lot easier for me to slot in.”

Green is no stranger to Charlton having played and scored against Lee Bowyer's men last season while on loan at Portsmouth, before finding the net against the Addicks once again during the pre-season friendly against Villa. He is now keen to be getting his numbers up in a Charlton shirt.

“I’ve been on the other end of it, scoring against Charlton so hopefully I can get as many as I can now I’m playing for them. Hopefully, I can just keep the numbers up and keep going and kick on.”

Having already featured for his new side in last weekend's FA Cup defeat to West Bromwich Albion, Green is eager to now face the baggies in the league and see The Valley with a larger attendance. 

“I played in the red for the first time and it was great to get some minutes as well to get a feel for the stadium and what it would be like with the atmosphere at the weekend coming up," he said.

“I’m looking forward to seeing what it will be like with more bums on seats. So, I think that it will be a good game for me to play in. With West Brom coming back, they’ll have a stronger team but we had a good fight against them so I’m looking forward to it and I know we’ll do well.”

Finally, Green touched on what supporters can expect from him. 

“I’m a winger and I can play up top as well. I’ve got pace and I like to get in behind. I like having the ball at my feet and being in one v one situations. I’ll be trying to improve on my goalscoring but yeah, I enjoy running at players, getting in behind and using that pace. I think that’s what you can expect from me, and I’ll work hard every game."
