Bessone believes in Ollie's style

New signing Federico Bessone believes Ian Holloway can get the best out of him during his time at The Den.

The Argentine left-back, 30, put pen-to-paper on a short-term contract until the end of the season on Tuesday, and arrives at the club with playing experience at Barcelona - where he came through the youth ranks - as well as Espanyol, Swansea, Leeds United and Charlton.

"In my second season playing for Swansea I remember that he (Ian Holloway) was Blackpool manager," Bessone told Lions Player.

"That year they got promoted to the Premier League playing very good football.

"Swansea had a Spanish mentality with Roberto Martinez and they liked to play with a Barcelona style. It was hard for me when I moved to Leeds because we didn't play like I was used to and I struggled, if I'm honest. But I learnt from that.

"Here I understand the way that the manager wants to play and I'm here because I like the mentality that he has. I will try to help the team as much as I can."
