Lugano is expected to train with his new team-mates for the first time tomorrow and he plans to make a positive impression – both on and off the pitch.
“I pride myself in being professional,” he told the WBA website. “I try to bring a good energy into the changing room – regardless of results.
“It’s important to stay positive, whether you’re winning or losing. On the pitch, I’m physically strong but I always try to be fair.
“I also try to help my team-mates as much as I can.”
Lugano’s English is patchy – but better than the modest defender claims!
He now aims to learn the language properly and is pleased to have a fellow South American in the dressing room.
“The fact Claudio Yacob is Argentinian is very good for me,” said the ex-Fenerbahce ace.
“Uruguayans and Argentinians are similar in many ways and I’m sure Claudio will help me settle in.”
