As a Leeds United fan, you’ve probably seen the news that Rasmus Kristensen had a good game for AS Roma over the weekend.
The Denmark international is currently in Italy on loan from Elland Road, and has had a difficult few months after his move there.
He’s been in and out of the team, with Rick Karsdorp providing frustrating competition, but the Leeds man has now finally settled, and is delighted with how things are going, telling the media all about it, relayed by Gazzetta dello Sport.
Key to his team’s 2-1 win by scoring a goal and providing an assist for the second, the Dane said he was ‘very happy’ to have helped his team, and a lot of it was down to Jose Mourinho.
“It’s a victory that I also want to dedicate to the team and technical staff. Tiago Pinto believed in me from the beginning, regardless of whether I played well or badly. I had to adapt to the language, country, culture. Here, everything is different, but I am very happy in Rome.”
Left out of the Europa League squad because of limitations, the Leeds loanee has only appeared for AS Roma in the league so far.
He has 13 appearances, having scored one goal and assisted two others, and there will be hope both in Italy and in Yorkshire that he has now made that right-hand side spot his own for the foreseeable future.
