FC Porto fullback Cristian Sapunaru admits he's struggled to settle in Portugal.

Fulham boss Martin Jol is keen to bring the Romania international to England this month and Sapunaru concedes he's unsettled.

"What I miss most of Romania is my friends. Porto is a beautiful city, but for those who come here to play is more difficult. The FC Porto squad, for example, is composed mostly of South American players, and usually they prefer to go out with a colleague who speaks the same language than with a Romanian," lamented Sapunaru.
