Watch the hilarious full interview as FBB TV’s young presenter Mehrshad interviews Crystal Palace Football Club winger Yannick Bolasie, asking him some fascinating questions about his skills, his career so far and his ideal 5-a-side team. The FBB TV crew travelled to Bristol for the interview, with 3 of our young FBB Schoolsparticipants getting the opportunity to be involved in the production. FBB TV is Football Beyond Borders’ youth-led media platform, training young people in digital media skills and giving them the opportunities to produce their own football media.
Mehrshad was delighted with how the day went, saying: “Meeting Yannick Bolasie was a great experience for me because I’ve never met a footballer before in my life, and I even got to interview him! He’s a friendly guy and has a really good personality. It was a long journey – 3 hours in the car from London to Bristol and the same going back – but it was totally worth it!”
Tom Bateman, Mehrshad’s teacher, said: “This kind of experience is incredible for the boys. Many 13 year olds can only dream of meeting Premier League footballers, let alone getting the chance to spend time with them. The experience of interviewing a premier league star in front of a camera is something not even many young journalists get to do! It was also great for our young people to see how professional footballers train – the effort they put in and their level of focus were a great example of the kind of dedication that is needed to succeed at the top level. It was a great day all round.”
We at FBB are extremely proud that one of our talented young presenters has interviewed yet another Premier League star and we’d like to share this video far and wide so please do help us promote it by sharing it on your social media channels.
Huge thanks to Rayan Wilson from Back 2 Action training camp for hosting us for this interview! Look out for an FBB TV interview with Rayan coming soon.
