Huddersfield’s Steve Mounié: ‘Now people know who I am’

Steve Mounie of Huddersfield Town celebrates scoring his sides second goal during the Premier League match between Crystal Palace and Huddersfield Town at Selhurst Park on August 12, 2017...

Steve Mounié fancied he was suited to the Premier League long before Huddersfield Town reached the same conclusion. Growing up in France after moving there from Benin as a four-year-old, the budding striker idolised Didier Drogba and dreamed of emulating the Ivorian. So he was thrilled when Huddersfield recognised his talent and paid £11.5m, a club-record fee, to prise him from Montpellier in July.
