What have you made to your start to life at Chelsea?
“The first ten games for Chelsea were really good for me. I learned a lot. I learned a lot about British football and the Premier League. I thought it was different to German football because in the way we play because of other differences in the league. But until now I am very happy. It makes it a lot of fun to play here, a lot of fun to play with the guys.
“We have a good team. You see now that when everybody is fit and come out of quarantine and come out of injuries and we play and train for two months together we see we have because a very good team. We learn much more than two weeks ago. For me it makes it a lot of fun to be here, it makes it a lot of fun to play my first games and if we go on with the next games like this it will be perfect.”
Do you feel at home at Chelsea?
“Of course. At the beginning always when you come to a new country, a new league, to come to a different style of football it’s always something different. Now I think I’m here in the league – I know how to play, I know what ways are better for my game, better for my team, better for my teammates. I feel really comfortable now and I hope it will go on like this.”

We have to have the goal to come very far in this competition.
