The Shouting Men with Gillingham midfielder Navid Nasseri

By KentOnline reporter

After a season playing in Sweden, I now want to try and entertain the fans here a little.

I like to run at defenders and create chances for the team.

In Sweden I was playing for a club called Syrianksa and their season only finished in November so I didn’t have much of a break.

I had a couple of weeks off before looking for a club and thankfully the gaffer and the chairman have given me that opportunity to do a job here.

Playing abroad was good experience for me, there were quite a few different things that I had to get used to, there was definitely no beans and toast for breakfast!

I used that as a stepping stone, to get a good opportunity to play first team games, develop more physically and then come back. I always had the intention to play again in England.

I now have to impress the gaffer here so I can try and win a place in the team. I want to get a good run of games and help the team out.

People have said about pushing for the playoffs. The gaffer has got everyone playing really positive football and working hard so if everyone chips in and keeps professional, keeps on top of things and not complacent than the sky is the limit.

My international clearance hadn’t gone through in time for last weekend’s match but I believe that has now been cleared. Hopefully I can be involved this Saturday. I know I have to work hard to get into that team.
