Ole Selnæs found St Étienne boring: “I was alone in my apartment.”

Speaking to Norwegian outlet Dagbladet, 24-year-old central midfielder Ole Selnæs reflected on his time at St Étienne, having left last month for FC Shenzhen.

“I had a wonderful experience in terms of football at St Étienne. But I never hid the fact that I did not enjoy myself in that town. It is a very small town with very few distractions. I would go to training and come home after. For the rest of the day, I was alone in my apartment. After 3 years like that, you eventually tell yourself that enough is enough. You want to discover other things… You have to fill your days with more than just training sessions.”
