Rodrigo Muniz has told the Brazilian press that he couldn’t have wished for a better first three months with Fulham.

The former Flamengo forward, interviewed by Brazilian sports daily Lance! ahead of this weekend’s Copa Libertadores final, says he has been blown away by the welcome he received from his new team-mates and that plenty of members of the squad have helped him settle into his new surroundings.

“For now I just have to be grateful. 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.”

Muniz believes he has already demonstrated an ability to adapt to the unique demands of Championship football – and he has scored three goals in ten league appearances, only making his first start in the second tier against Derby last night.

“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.”
