Jozy Altidore hopes for a fresh chance with Sunderland this season.
The striker was the Black Catsâ€™ most expensive signing last summer, joining in a ÂŁ6.8m deal from Dutch side AZ Alkmaar, but scored just one Premier League goal in his first year on Wearside and lost his place in the starting line-up towards the end of the campaign.
â€śItâ€™s a bit different [to Holland],â€ť Altidore told the Evening Chronicle.
â€śComing to Sunderland was a whole was different, but this is where you have to adapt.
â€śIt was a tough year for me last year. I struggled, everybody struggled.
â€śWhen things donâ€™t go well, you analyse what you can do better. Iâ€™ve done that and hopefully this season I can start out on the right foot.
â€śThe first year was difficult but it is out of the way now. We stayed up and now it is a new start for everybody and we just have to try and affect the game every time you play.
â€śWhen the team is playing well, you are going to see individuals playing well.â€ť
