Brennan Menell: “I learn Russian every day, but I still need to work on my grammar”

Defender of Moscow “Dynamo” Brennan Menell said he was working hard to learn the Russian language, but was still far from being able to communicate fluently.

On Thursday, Dynamo defeated CSKA in the KHL regular season match with a score of 4:2. This summer, Menell received Russian citizenship.

— CSKA should never be underestimated. They have many Gagarin Cup winners, a very good coach and a team with a winning culture. Any match with CSKA is a test for you. And today we passed this test.

— Gusev scored again. Is it cool to play with such a partner?

— He is an excellent player, with astonishing data. Gusev can do anything at any time, which you wouldn’t expect from him. Every game with him is a great honor, I love being on the ice with him.

— Can you answer the question why you decided to obtain Russian citizenship?

– Actually, there are several reasons. I like it here: living in Moscow, playing for Dynamo. And I really want to stay here as long as possible. An opportunity presented itself to take citizenship, I took it, why not?

— To what extent do you feel Russian? Is it difficult with the language?

— We have a lot of championship matches, not a lot of time, but I work on the language every day. I try to take classes or study it in communication with partners. Every day I feel more and more comfortable, but I still need to work on my grammar – everything is not so perfect. (He continues speaking in Russian) Every day I learn Russian. Maybe an hour or 30 minutes. But it’s still difficult for me. “I understand a little,” reports the correspondent Menella’s words.
