Sunderland winger Stephane Sessesgnon is delighted with the way he's settled since his January arrival.
The trickster says he's delighted with the way he's settled in on Wearside.
"I was lucky to find a team with players who had already played in the French League and players who I had played against several times in qualifying matches," he told safc.com.
"It made things easier and allowed me to fit in, as I don't speak English that well they helped me as they speak a bit of French.
"I was also lucky to work with Eric Black who speaks French. The team have made me feel good about being here."
