“I knew that I’d come to a very competitive club involved in everything. So, I’m really, really happy how it’s started and long may it continue.”
“It has been a bit of a surprise, yeah,” he continued.
“This is how I wanted everything to work out. I wanted to settle as quickly as possible, as I was saying before, and to get to know the style of play and feel comfortable.
“In training and on the field, I think I’ve managed to develop a good understanding with my teammates – and I think that’s been down to both them and the coaching staff, who have helped me in this settling-in period.
“They have been a great help to me. I’m here to try to help, I’m here to try to support the team and the lads.
“As I say, I want to just keep doing my best.”
