The Goalkeeper already knew some of his teammates ahead of joining the relegation destined side: ” It’s been a easy transition I already knew some of the lads from former teammates to playing against them and those who I didn’t know have welcomed me it’s a pretty solid team and we are still hoping to turn it around.”
