Veteran playmaker Eric Carriere has expressed his delight at his growing influence at Lens.
Carriere moved from Lyon in search of first team football in the summer, and has immediately made an impact at Lens.
"I am truly proud to be captain of this side," Carriere told L'Equipe.
"Moreover, at Lens being a captain carries a great responsibility.
"The officials ask my opinion, even on non-sporting matters.
"The marketing men asked me about how things are done at other clubs and how I think it could be improved here.
"I have the feeling that everything is in place here, even if the league position could be improved.
"It is the club I was looking for. Everything is well managed and the people are passionate."
