Jens Petter Hauge was happy at the end of the match against Spezia, which marked his debut for Milan.

The Norwegian joined the club from Bodø/Glimt for €4m and today he made his debut for the Rossoneri, as he entered the pitch in the 70′ minute against Spezia.

Milan won the game 3-0 thanks to goals from Leão (56′, 77′) and Theo Hernández (75′). Hauge got time to show his skills, had some good moves and got to celebrate two goals with his new friends.

“The emotions from the debut? My emotions are good, it was great playing here in a Red and Black shirt, so today was a good day for me and when the team wins – it’s perfect,” the 20-year-old told MilanTV at the end of the match.

“The first days as a Milan player? It’s good, the players and the staff have been really nice to me, to help me to understand things because it’s a little bit different and hard with the language, so I will try to learn Italian as fast as I can… the days have been perfect.

“With which teammate have I bonded? Everyone has been nice to me and talking to me, but I’ve talked a lot with Bennacer and Brahim Diaz, we talked a lot on the bus from Milanello to the hotel and also Hakan, who is trying to teach me the way to play. I’m really happy with everyone, it’s been some nice days.”
