DUNDEE signing Glen Kamara believes that he has what it takes to succeed in Scotland after following the advice of former Rangers loanee, Gedion Zelamem.
The 21-year-old came through the youth ranks at Arsenal with Zelamem and watched him during his loan spell two years ago.
“I don’t know much about Scottish football but I have watched a bit of it because Gedion Zelalem is my friend.
“I used to watch him play in the bigger games, like Celtic against Rangers, and I spoke to him about coming here.
“He just told me it’s a bit different to down in England but that it’s a good level, it’s not as quick as English football but there would be a chance for me to excel here.
After his release from Arsenal in the summer, the midfielder, who has been capped to the U21 level with Finland, signed a two-year deal with Neil McCann’s side.
“I know it’s going to be tough and physical up here, but I think I will handle that, no problem.
“Gedion told me you get more time on the ball in Scotland, which is a good thing for me because I like to use the ball as much as I can.
“It’s great to have the season started now. I think we can improve on how we played but getting the win was the main thing.”
Kamara made his debut for the ‘Dee on Tuesday night in their 2-1 win over Raith Rovers.
