Israeli international striker Tomer Hemed has said that he definitely knows he made the right move to the Amex this summer given how he’s settled into life at the club so quickly so far this season.

His goal yesterday inside of the first five minutes of the game against Hull proved to be enough to give us victory in the top of the Championship table clash, and speaking to the Official Site following the game, he admitted he couldn’t have asked for more so far this season as he adjusts.

‘For me as a player who has just joined, I can say that it`s like a family. It`s really good and the most important thing is to be together in the good times, the bad times and difficult times. I am happy that it`s like that at our club and we can succeed like that. I knew that it would be a big difference from the Spanish league and I am happy that I have got used to the style of football very quickly.’

Hemed admits there’s still things he needs to adjust to and improve on, but he knows that normal and most of them will come with more confident and him being more comfortable in the division, so he can’t complain and every player can always and should always look to improve anyway.

‘I can feel happy with what I`m doing. I`m happy here at Brighton and it was the best decision for me to come here. I am really excited at the prospect of succeeding with this team and having a good season.’

One thing the 28 year old wasn’t going to do though was get carried away with stats showing it’s our best start to a season in four years now, saying that whilst promotion is obviously an aim it’s way too early to be talking about it given how many games we have left.

‘It`s too early. We just started the season and we know that this league is very long and tough. We can be happy with what we are doing now, but we know that It is a long season and we need to work hard to stay where we are. Of course it is my dream to play in the Premier League and I hope to do it, but now it`s too early. I just want to succeed with Brighton and hope that we have a good season.’

He ended his interview with praise for his colleagues and Beram Kayal in particular for helping him to settle.

‘Beram is my friend with the national team as well, so our families are all together and it helps us. As a Spanish guy, Bruno knows that I come from the same place as him, Almeria. He also helped me with everything, but all the team have made me feel good and that`s very important. When I play well, it gives me a chance in the national team, so I will try to do my best here and hopefully that will give me more minutes in the national team.’
