It’s now been three months since Rodrigo Muniz’s arrival at Fulham, and the striker claims to be having a good adaptation at the club.
The 20-year-old is featured today in an interview with Lance. As his former side Flamengo are playing the Copa Libertadores final at the weekend, he had a word with them about his support for his former teammates.
Now regarding his time in West London, Muniz claims he knew about the difficulties he’d have in changing countries, but is getting the help from the Whites to settle in his new home.
“For now I just have to be grateful,” Rodrigo Muniz told Lance.
“Of course there are a lot of changes, there’s the language issue, the style of play, but these are things that I gradually pick up on. I’m young and it helps. In addition, I was very well received at the club, everyone made me feel comfortable and relaxed to work. I’ve learned and evolved a lot in recent months.”
On the new football he found in the Championship, Muniz believes he’s already been able to adapt to a different way of playing, and is now focused on helping his team to get the promotion to the Premier League.
“The main objective at that time was to be able to better understand how football is played here and adapt to the country. I believe that, despite the short time, I managed to evolve. I have been trying to learn, observe and, when I have the opportunity, I believe I have been able to perform well too. We have a very good team and a very united group, which is focused on pursuing our goals and we are managing to remain in the top positions.”
Rodrigo Muniz joined Fulham on a €8m deal from Flamengo in the summer, and has three goals in 10 appearances for the Craven Cottage side so far.
