"I've had a little look at my books.
"Obviously it's the first few days so I've tried not to look at that too much and be focused on the football.
"But when I do have free time I can look at them.
"I like to spend time with the boys, which is important, and have a bit of fun.
"But at night before I'm going to bed or whatever, I might have a look over it,” Tomori submitted.
