Hakimi says he's still to improve as he settles since his arrival from Real Madrid.
“People talk about me being different, but I am the same, I have just been working hard and trying to make sure that I adapt to this new team and league. I'm still Hakimi," he told DAZN.
“I am trying to learn the language, get used to the people, the city, and it's not dissimilar to Spanish, so it shouldn't take too long.
“I realise that my pace is a useful quality, so when there's a lot of space in front of me, I can get up a head of steam and be more effective for the team."
