Toon New Boy Wants Help From French Players
Romain Amalfitano will need help with the language as he attempts to make his way in English football.
The 22-year-old former Reims midfielder is struggling with the English language. Romain Amalfitano: "I have always done everything to be successful, so there is no reason why I would not be able to here, and if I need to, I will adapt.
"The only issue is the language barrier, but there are many French players, so that is very helpful.
"Demba [Ba], Gabby Obertan, Sylvain Marveaux and also Mehdi [Abeid], who I have just met, players who speak my language, have helped me.
"My first goal is to impose myself. Obviously, I know that is not going to be easy and football goes very quickly, but it is not impossible.
"This is what I am here for. I try not to think about things too much, take it day by day and not ask myself too many questions so I can perform better.
"I am obviously very excited to know that there are 52,000 fans in the stadium. I think there is a whole city behind this club supporting the club.
"Obviously, I am very excited and I can also feel the pressure. I will have to deal with that and I will adapt.
"I just want to prove to them that I have the desire and energy to succeed. I really want to do well here, not only on a personal level, but also for the club. "I want to show them that the club trusted in me. I am here now and I want to do everything I can."
