“At Levante, I did not play very well due to some circumstances with the coach,” he told ESPN.

“In Spain, the coach only spoke Spanish and I needed a translator.

“It was easier to play in France because I understand the language more and the communication is very good with the coach.

“I am enjoying my football now. The most important thing is to play. Not to sit on the bench. To have the freedom to play, have the freedom to speak. and to do what you know how to do best.”
