Brennan Johnson opens up on his love for fashion as he looks to help Wales reach Euro 2024… as the Tottenham forward discusses his pride in playing for his country – instead of England!

Date:

  • Johnson featured for England at youth level before switching loyalties to Wales
  • He will play a major part in Wales’ bid to reach Euro 2024 during next fortnight
  • Ange Postecoglou won’t be phased by criticism and won’t change his objectives because of Daniel Levy… this is who he is! It’s All Kicking Off podcast

Brennan Johnson has opened up on his love for fashion ahead of what will likely be his latest appearance for Wales.

The forward has enjoyed a positive season in the Premier League since joining Tottenham in a £47.5million move from Nottingham Forest, notching four goals and six assists in the Premier League.

He will now hope to lead Wales into the summer’s European Championship, with his side to face off against Finland in the play-offs and then potentially Poland during this international break.

A win will see Johnson, 22, head to his second major tournament with his country, having made his debut in 2018 after featuring for England at youth level.

But he has recently spoken about one of his key interests away from football, which is fashion, and how he likes to explore what he likes and feels suits his style.

Speaking to GQ Magazine, he said: ‘Fashion is massive for me. That’s been consistent in my life. I love finding out new things about clothes, what looks good on me, what looks bad. It’s a way to learn about yourself. And about what influences designers, too, especially designers from different cultures. 

‘I’ve always grown up in England, but through football, I’ve seen a little about how people from different places live.

‘I especially love learning about Asian fashion, the cultures and traditions. I’ve never properly been there, which is something I’d love to do. The pride they take in their fashion and their perfectionism is inspiring.’

Johnson is of Jamaican descent, his father being former footballer David Johnson, and played for England in international friendlies at Under-16 and Under-17 level.

In 2018, however, he switched allegiances to Wales, who he qualifies to play for through his mother, Alison, playing for the Under-19 and Under-21 sides before making his debut in 2020.

The forward spoke of his Jamaican links, and described what it is like to play for Wales, and how he has never looked back since rejecting England.

‘As soon as I played my first game for Wales, everything felt completely different, he said. ‘When you play for Wales, you just know. And from there, it grows and grows and grows. It grows into you.

‘I’m super proud of my Jamaican side, but I feel more and more Welsh whenever I play.

‘Playing for them in front of my mum and my grandparents, seeing how much they loved it, I love it just as much.’
