“I expected to spend some time adapting to the team’s style, but the chance came and I grabbed it.” 

“I’m encouraged by how I’ve performed,” added the 21-year-old. “All I can say is if you work hard, things will go well for you. Yeah, I’m quite proud of how I’ve played so far and I want to continue doing well.” 

“It’s important that we play well on Saturday. Whichever team gels well will have the upper hand. It’s a big game, and we’re up for it,” he concluded.
