“For sure there are some differences. It’s a different soccer than the Italian [league], but each team has its own style.

“This team is perfect for me because it is full of young players and they can also help me. It’s impossible for me to have the same physical characteristics I had 10 years ago, but I can bring something to them.

“We have to create a good mix of experience and enthusiasm to become a winning group.”
