Magnusson Enjoying Life In England

Hordur Magnusson is pleased with how quickly he has adapted to life in England.

Signed from Italian giants Juventus in the summer, Magnusson has been involved in every league game so far for City, who currently occupy fifth spot in the Sky Bet Championship.

The Icelandic international, part of the history-making Euro 2016 squad, believes he has settled quickly into life at Ashton Gate.

And he told Bristol City Player HD: "It feels like home already.

"I've enjoyed my time here so far. We're doing well in the league and the cup as well.

"The fans have been great to me - really welcoming - and my team-mates too. It feels like one big family.

"From the first day I've been welcomed. I feel like I've adapted quickly to English football - hopefully that will continue."

Next up for the defender and his colleagues is a trip to QPR's Loftus Road tonight.

He added: "It's nice to play in the English stadium. A lot of them are close to the pitch, the fans are right on you.

"Tonight at QPR will be a pure English football game. It will be physical and we need to be ready from the first minute.

"We want to get back to winning again. We're still fifth in the league and hopefully we can improve on that."
