Houssem Aouar recognized the team’s shortcomings in their first Serie A match of the season with Salernitana.

The Algerian midfielder made his official debut for the Giallorossi earlier this evening and proved to be one of the best players in tonight’s draw with Salernitana.

After the match, Aouar spoke to DAZN about the result and the team’s room for improvement.

“It was a difficult game for us and for me,” he said. “Personally it’s a whole new world for me. I hope to play better for the team in the future.”

“I’m happy with today’s game, and I think we deserved to win. We have to learn to defend ourselves better, but I’m confident for the future.”

“I ¬†need time to regain my condition, I need time but I think I’ll be ready for this team. I think we have a great team, with great players and we have to do better. As I said, we talked among ourselves, we’re happy but we’ll improve.”

“The fans were incredible tonight. For me it’s an honor to play for these colors. This is a great club with unique fans. I hope to have a great season for them.”
