New Fulham forward Rodrigo Muniz says he is ‘very happy’ to have joined the Championship club after completing his first training session at Motspur Park today.

The young Brazilian striker, who was the subject of a summer tug-of-war between Fulham and Middlesbrough, had to quarantine in Spain before finally being able to train with his new team-mates today after his £6m move to Craven Cottage.

Muniz told FFC TV:

“I am very happy being here meeting my new team-mates. I want to thank the whole team, the staff and everyone involved in making this deal happen. I thank God I am here and I am very happy. When I stepped in today, I said ‘Thank you God this happened’. I am a Fulham player and very happy.”

The former Flamengo forward said he enjoyed his first training session and underlined his delight at working with Marco Silva.

It was very good. I received a warm welcome. I am very happy to be at a winning club that is first in the league. I came here to add to the team and help the team.

Marco and the rest of the staff gave me a very warm welcome and we had a very good conversation. We spoke a lot and we are both very happy. I am happy to work with him and I will do my best to help the team.

He shared his delight at making the move to Europe and wants to help Fulham maintain their outstanding start to the new Championship campaign.

“Every young player dreams of playing in Europe. Thank God, being 20 now, I will seize this opportunity with both hands. I am a team player, I help my team-mates. I look to score goals, when I cannot, I look to help by giving my all, by scoring and helping my team-mates, perfecting whatever I need to.”
