The defender, signed in the summer from Steaua Bucharest, started at centre-half alongside Jan Vertonghen in the Third Round tie, and played his part as we kept our eighth clean sheet of the season in a 4-0 win.
And the Romanian international says he aims to build on his first outing as each game comes along.
“It was a great performance from the team and another clean sheet, a nice victory,” said Vlad afterwards.
“For myself, it was okay. I have to get better game by game but the performance of the team was very good.
“It’s a great feeling, I tried to defend well and make a good performance for the team.”
We’ll discover our opponents for the Fourth Round in tonight’s draw, which takes place after the Manchester United v Liverpool fixture.
