A first in our regular updates from our loanees in Scandinavia, Charlie Winfield talks us through his experience of Denmark so far. The versatile youngster has been with Esbjerg fB for almost three weeks now and marked his debut in the NordicBet League with an assist.
I’ve got my own little flat; it’s basic, but it gets the job done. We’re all in the same building – Wolfie is next door and Jordan and Steve are just round the other side.
It helps having them here because we’ve come to a new country and don’t really know anything, so having them here makes it a little bit easier.
I speak to my mum, dad and girlfriend every evening, just to have a catch up about how my day is going and how theirs have gone. I think they’re planning on coming out to see me when they can but, obviously with the times we’re living in, it’s difficult.
It’s very different to England; it’s very clean and there’s a lot of people riding bikes – not many people drive cars, so I haven’t seen that much traffic around. But it’s a nice country from what I’ve seen so far.
We’ve been into the city a few times; there’s a few nice shops and food places to go. I’ve not tried any Danish cuisine yet because I can’t understand anything.
