Thomas Lemar delighted to make Atletico Madrid move

Thomas Lemar is delighted with his first weeks at Atletico Madrid.

The France winger joined Atletico earlier this month from AS Monaco.

Lemar told Marca: "My agents made me aware but I was more focused on my football for Monaco and the national team. After, everything away from the pitch I left to them. All I worry about is what I do on the pitch."

"I don't feel pressure, because I tell myself that they are figures for the clubs. I have nothing to do with this. I only have to do my work on the pitch and everything will go well... at least I hope."

"My integration is going very well. When there are great players and humble, social people around, it can only go well. My adaptation has been easy at all the clubs I've been at. I am not a complicated person, and everything becomes easier with players like Diego Costa, who is crazy [Lemar said this in perfect Spanish], and Koke. They are fantastic. Then you have Antoine [Griezmann] and Lucas [Hernandez], who I can speak French to and so it becomes easy to adapt and get on with my teammates."
