“This is an opportunity that came to me that I was very interested in, and I was very eager to come,” he said. “It happened very quickly and now I focus on the next game, getting up to speed with training in terms of the manager’s methods and then hopefully have a very good season.

Whatever happens, he certainly doesn’t seem to be thinking about English football right now.
