YOUTH - INTERVIEWS Samuel Bastien is playing a great season with Avellino and is very happy in Italy. "The fans are comparing me with Kevin De Bruyne", the youngster reacts. "However, I am keeping my feet on the ground."
"I learned a lot here, especially about tactics. My team mate, Benjamin Mokulu, is helping me a lot to get used to the language and the competition here."
"The most important for me now is play time. I am playing here in a more offensive role, with more freedom. Fans are comparing me with Kevin De Bruyne but I should stay realistic: this is only my first season as a professional", says Bastien.
Juventus and Liverpool are reported to be interested in the player. "That makes me happy but I should take one step at a time. A return to Anderlecht is also possible. In any case, I know they are still following me and I am still in contact with many people over there."
