Sascha settling in to English way of life

14 August 2014

Summer signing Sascha Studer is enjoying his time in England so far after his move from Swiss side FC Winterthur, the shot-stopper revealed today.

After experiencing a wind of chance since flying in from Switzerland, Studer has said that his team-mates have helped him out a lot: “I stayed with Fergus Bell in his apartment until last Sunday, and I’m now in my own apartment. I had great help off my team-mates.”

Studer is trying to adjust to English life as quickly as possible, but he couldn’t do anything about being slightly late this morning when his taxi didn’t show up: “I called them twice and said: ‘my taxi is too late!’ I hate to be late because it’s not professional.”

He went on to say that he still intends to undertake English lessons to help him learn the language more quickly. "I will go to classes. But first I need to settle in and get prepared for my apartment and car, and this [type of] stuff.”

On the field, Studer feels that we have been unlucky in the opening two matches but will strive to improve: “We lost two games, we need to work. My experience was good but we need points.”

Studer has been amazed in the first two games by the support shown by the Stags fans, he said: “[The support] was brilliant, that’s not the same in Switzerland .I was impressed when I saw 1200 [supporters] yesterday - it's great support and I hope it goes on.”

The Swiss ‘keeper hopes the Stags can repay the supporters with good performances on the pitch, targeting a top seven finish: “That’s our target and we will give everything to be in the first seven [of the table].”
