Diangana the cover star for Saturday’s Albion News

Skill moves and Brazilian influences are the talking points from Baggies winger Grady Diangana’s feature in Saturday’s latest edition of Albion News.

The speedy attacker reveals all from his footballing roots to the career catalyst which gave him the confidence to make the step up into professional football. And, unsurprisingly, attempting clever flicks and touches were a regular theme during Grady’s upbringing in the capital.

Growing up in London meant the former West Ham United academy graduate spent a lot of his time perfecting specific techniques in the streets with his friends and older brother, where “humiliating” people was highly valued.

But the 24-year-old says he only focuses on using skills in the present day to get out of tight scenarios in order to benefit the Baggies tactically during games.

And even during tough periods of his early career due to injury, Diangana used gifted players such as Ronaldinho, Ronaldo and Robinho as inspiration for when he returned to action. To hear all from Albion’s No.11, this edition is one to get hold of!

Steve Bruce and Jake Livermore stress the need for a good start to a busy schedule before the World Cup break in their usual instalments, while also praising Erik Pieters' impact during Albion's last game against Norwich City.

And this week's academy feature sees defender Cianole Nguepissi give us the lowdown on a variety of footballing/social topics.

Programmes will be available at all the usual stalls in and around The Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon. They can also be purchased from the Stadium Megastore, which is located outside the East Stand.
