Timothy Castagne was delighted with three points and a clean sheet from his first outing at Craven Cottage as a Fulham player against Luton Town yesterday.
The recent signing from Leicester City had an excellent home debut having had just four full training sessions since arriving at the end of the transfer window, slotting in seamlessly at left back in place of the injured Antonee Robinson. The Belgian international enjoyed his first game at Fulham’s historic home – having previously watched from the Hammersmith End as a teenager.
Castagne told FFCTV after the final whistle:
“It was a great start. We’re happy with the three points. They played almost six at the back at some points so it was difficult to create something but we scored and we keptn the clean sheet, so it was great. It is always good to start with a win and a clean sheet – so I’m very happy. It hasn’t been easy with the international break but the lads have been great with me.
It was good, it was not easy because they were always trying to double [up] on Willi, but he kept going and, in the end, he got the assist – so hopefully we can do more in the next game. I was behind [him] so I left him the space so he went forward and did his own thing and Vini was there to get the rebound and score, so it was a great job from him as well. I was always on my wrong foot so it was quite difficult [playing left back] but it was quite alright, we managed to create a few things and defensively I was quite strong so I’m pretty pleased with that. We have to strive for more – it was a good first win but we want to get the next one. It will be great to get a full week of training under my belt, get the link ups and connections with team-mates and hopefully improve.
