Luciano Figueroa is hugely impressed by his first impressions of Villarreal.Villarreal striker Luciano Figueroa admits he has been hugely impressed by his first impressions of the club.
The Argentine made his debut in the goalless draw against Real Madrid last weekend after moving from Mexican outfit Cruz Azul.
Villarreal currently sit 14th in La Primera, just two points above the relegation places, but 'Lucio' is adamant the club will start to climb the table in the very near future if they keep playing the kind of football they displayed against Real.
"When we had the ball, we tried to play good football and only ambitious teams do that," he told the club's official website.
"If we continue in that way, we will quickly get out of the situation we are in.
"I feel very good and very comfortable at Villarreal. The people have made me feel very welcome.
"The substitutes were encouraging the starters against Real Madrid more than anyone.
"I always wanted to come and play in this league because it was the one I enjoyed watching most on television.
"I have already found out that they play at a very high rhythm and Villarreal try to play the ball all the time."
