Although happy with his man-of-the-match debut performance against Dundee United last weekend, Nakamura believes he is bound to improve as he gets to know his new colleagues.

¡°I have to learn how my teammates play but it looks good for the future. There was some good play but I will improve the more games I play,¡± the Asian Cup 2004 player of the tournament told the BBC.

¡°The supporters were behind me and they made me man-of-the-match which was the perfect start for me.

¡°The players and the manager (Gordon Strachan) have been great for me but I would just like to be sharper with my movements. Some of the play was great and I think John Hartson is a top-level player. I could easily find him with the ball but the more I play the better it will be.

¡°It was my first match but I wasn¡¯t nervous at all because I have played in Serie A and at the highest level,¡± he added.
