West Bromwich Albion man Kenneth Zohore has made a big impact at his new club with Lee Wallace thrilled to call the striker a Millwall teammate, while speaking to the League Paper.
The Danish centre-forward has spent time at two different Championship clubs in his career and it is fair to say that, while he thrived at one, he struggled at the other.
Zohore played a major role as Neil Warnock’s Cardiff City stunned the division en route to promotion in 2017/18.
But he never came close to repeating those heroics at West Brom, following up his £8 million transfer with just five league starts under Slaven Bilic.
Zohore fell even further down the pecking order once the Baggies brought in Karlan Grant from Huddersfield Town and, despite interest from Derby and Sheffield Wednesday, he joined Millwall earlier in October.
With a goal on his full debut in the 2-0 midweek win at Preston, Millwall fans will be hoping that see the ‘Cardiff Zohore’ rather than the West Brom version.
“It’s always brilliant to bring in players such as Kenneth Zohore – he’s always been a real handful in matches, so I’m delighted to not be playing against him this season,” says Wallace.
“It’s great that he’s decided to come to Millwall, he’s a great player and when he gets more minutes under his belt, we’ll be able to see that.
“He’s a strong lad, powerful, good with his feet as well – I’m just glad I’m not having to come up against him in games. I get it in training instead!
“Hopefully that will make me a better player, he’s a great one to add to the team.”
Given that he has one of the Championship’s most dangerous wingers in Wallace providing the ammunition, Zohore should not be short of chances at Millwall this season.
