Haller admits tough adjustment to West Ham

Sebastian Haller admits it has been difficult to adjust to life at West Ham United.

The club's record signing broke his duck in Saturday's 3-1 win over Watford, finishing with a brace.

"It is the best feeling ever to come into a new club and score goals like this," said the 25-year-old French striker, who joined from Eintracht Frankfurt last month.

"Of course for a striker it is always nice to score goals especially when we get a win. It is not always easy to move to another country and I still have a lot of things to fix.

"It is not easy off the pitch. When you get an apartment you have to settle perfectly with all the boxes and also a pregnant woman, so it is not always easy.

"I need to get used to it with the new things. They are only small things but in the end they make a difference. The club has really helped me.

"On the pitch there is a lot of intensity in games. It is not the competition, it is about the players you have and you play against."
