New boy Cheikhou Kouyate has expressed his delight in making his debut for the club in Saturdays friendly draw with Stevenage, and was impressed by the support shown by the travelling fans.
Kouyate, who signed from Belgian champions Anderlecht this summer, said “It’s fantastic! Momo Diame told me: ‘You’re going to love the fans. It’s mad! They’re truly amazing’.”
“And there you go, even for a pre-season game, I see that they’re all there and supporting us.
“I’m sure it’s going to be even better in the Premier League. Momo was absolutely spot on!”
