Erik Lamela admits he's loved his first six months with AS Roma.

The young midfielder joined Roma in August from River Plate.

Lamela told Ole: "I'm happy with these first seven months. At first I could not play because of injury. But once I returned I have picked up the pace. Fortunately I got a place in the first team, which was my dream.

"I have been well received from the beginning. Now I feel like a king. With the team that we have, I think we can reach the top."
