Adil Rami expressed his jubilation at scoring his debut goal for AC Milan during Saturday's 1-1 draw with Torino and says he has settled into Serie A now.
The France international secured a loan away from Valencia - where he had fallen out with the club's hierarchy - in October with an option to buy at the end of the season, but could not make his debut until January.
Rami, 28, thinks the best is yet to come from him, having adjusted to the differences between Spanish and Italian football.
"I am very happy for my first goal with AC Milan," he told reporters after the match. "It was a great feeling to score today. I have known Philippe Mexes for years, and went straight to him after the goal.
"La Liga is completely different from Serie A, but now I understand how Serie A works. I have to prove I am at the required level now."
Urby Emanuelson also enjoyed a stand-out performance versus Torino and praised goalscorer Rami and new Rossoneri coach Clarence Seedorf for the impact they have made at San Siro.
"Rami is a special man and a good player who always jokes with us," the defender stated. "He played a great game tonight and scored a fine goal.
"We're doing better in every game. I still have to learn more, but I was happy with my performance tonight.
"We have been with our new coach for two or three weeks now and are learning his way of playing. We must continue like this."
