New Manchester City signing Ferran Torres has no doubts about his ability to adapt to English football and believes he is readymade for the Premier League.
The 20-year-old has had to wait to make his debut, with City starting the 2020-21 campaign a week later than the majority of clubs because of their Champions League commitments in August.
City belatedlybegin their Premier League seasonagainstWolves at Molineux on Mondayand, should he be selected, Torreshas backed himself to hit the ground running.
"I am very happy to be here and for the season to have started, and above all I just can't wait for Monday, to be able to play my first game in the Premier League," he told Sky Sports.
"I am an ambitious player and I know I am capable of becoming a starter. I am going to work hard to achieve it.
“Of course, I know English football is very different to football in Spain because it's more physical, but that's a style of play that is more suited to me. I believe I am going to adapt quickly.”
Torres says the opportunity to work with Guardiola was a key factor in his decision to leave his boyhood club, who he joined at the age of six.
“He Guardiola is a manager who knows how to get the best out of every player," he added.
"I am young and I think I have a lot of room to improve, so I thought he was the right man to help me do that. He wants me to play my game and get numbers, in terms of goals and assists.
"Of course, it is not easy to leave a place which has been your home for 12 or 13 years.
