Ghanaian winger Kamaldeen Sulemana has reacted positively to his English Premier League debut with Southampton that took place this past weekend.
Southampton lost 0-3 to Brentford in a Week 22 fixture that marked Sulemana’s first game for Southampton after securing a record transfer from French side Stade Rennes.
Sulemana joined The Saints for 25 million Euros on a four and a half year deal and came on as a second half substitute in the loss to Brentford; Southampton trailed 0-2 at half time.
Speaking to Southampton in his first official interview since joining the English south coast club, Sulemana was pleased he got the chance to experience life in the Premier League early after his move.
“It’s good to know how it feels to play in the Premier League; now it’s about getting everything right and making sure we win games and move forward” he said.
He added, “Before coming here obviously in the national team we talk about EPL, we talk about everything but before coming here he had nothing to do with the decision. I just made it by myself and then when I got here he showed me around and he’s still showing me around”
“I’m looking forward to giving my all to the team. To do what I do best to help the team win because that’s the most important thing and hopefully we’re able to win more games and stay and stay in the league and that’s the main goal”.
Sulemana and fellow new signing Paul Onuachu were praised by head coach Nathan Jones for “making a difference” in the game against Brentford. (Click highlighted text to read full story)
