First Interview | Nohan Kenneh

17 July 2023

Nohan Kenneh sat down with the Shrewsbury media team at a sunny Sundorne Castle following his arrival from Hibs.

The 20-year-old has joined us a season-long loan having impressed in the Scottish Premier League last season during a temporary switch to Ross County - with Nohan playing a key role in The Staggies maintaining their SPL status.

Speaking after his first training session, the tough tackling midfielder discussed his career to date, his spell at Ross County and making his international debut for Liberia.

ON JOINING TOWN:

"I'm delighted to be here. I've trained today and now cannot wait to get going.

"Training was good. There was a lot of tactical work and we tried to work on our pressing and our pressing patterns.
 
"I felt good and all the boys have been really good with me as well."
 
ON HIS CAREER TO DATE:
 
"I was at Leeds, I joined them quite young and did my scholarship there.
 
"They were in the Premier League at the time and I was on the bench but I wanted to get more game time so I moved up north to Scotland, which is where I am now with Hibernian.
 
"So far it is going well but for me it is all about playing. That is why I have come here, the facilities are good, the set-up is good and that is the main thing."
 
ON HIS LOAN AT ROSS COUNTY:
 
"It was my first proper season in men's football.
 
"For me to get game time and to play 35 or 36 games - to get that under my belt, it was good for my development.  
 
"To go to County and keep them up is good for my CV. It has made me more confident, development wise. It was really good for me."
 
ON HIS PLAYING STYLE:
 
"I am more of a ball-winning central midfielder.
 
"I like to break up play and play forward quickly.
 
"I try to keep it ticking over and help the back four. That is my game, making the midfielders in front of me do their work and keeping it simple."
 
ON PLAYING FOR LIBERIA:

"I have been with England in the youth set-up, which was a fantastic experience.

"But when Liberia came calling they had been contacting me for a while so I think it was a good move at the right time.

"I feel like when I went there it was an amazing experience it was probably one of the best decisions I have made in my career so far.

"I made my debut in a double-header against South Africa. We played them home and away which was a really good experience.

"The whole experience has been amazing. The people have been fantastic, I couldn't wish for anything more."
