Toronto FC new boy Laba adapting well to MLS

Matias Laba says he is becoming more and more accustomed to MLS after his first month with Toronto FC.

The 21-year old Argentine midfielder has appeared five times for the Canadian outfit since his Designated Player move from Argentinos Juniors at the beginning of May and admits he has adapted quickly to life in North America.

"Every day feels more and more comfortable," Laba told MLSsoccer.com via translator on Tuesday.

"With respect to the rhythm of the game and the overall style of play, I am getting more and more comfortable every day."

He added: "It is a very organized league and there are quality players here. It is definitely something that I would recommend to my friends. The biggest difference is with the better quality pitches here compared to back home.

"Everything is new and everything is a new transition, but one thing I am very thankful for is the fact that the club has done everything possible to help me. Even with regular daily things, the club has been involved in helping me."
