"I feel happy to be back to the national team and I
feel good being around so many new faces. They're not the same as the older
players I used to play with but at the end of the day, it's the same thing.
"I'm happy to see the new guys and everybody has
welcomed me so I'm just happy to be here. The most important thing is to come
and do well for the team.
"It's a good relationship we have here because I never
had problems with anyone. We have young and talented players here and even
though everything is new, I'm happy to see them," he said.
