Spurs midfielder, Gedson Fernandes has come out to admit the pace of EPL was surprising to him when he joined the league.
Gedson recently revealed that his recent experiences of the English top flight have been totally crazy.
According to him, he has learnt that players have to always be alert in the EPL because there is never enough time to think on the pitch during games.
He added the EPL is more competitive that any other league in world and the football played in England is not bad.
His words, “It’s completely different to what we saw on the TV,”
“When I made my first minutes, I couldn’t believe it because everything felt so slow but at the same time everything was so fast on the pitch. It’s something different to learn.
“Mentally, I think when you play the first few minutes of a game, you feel so tired. After that you feel okay, you feel comfortable, so you can play your game but yes, in the first few minutes, they are crazy moments.
“You are alert, you want to see what’s happening but, at the same time, you have no time to wait and watch around to see where your man is. You need to be focused. Your head has to stay in the moment.
“You come from a different country and a different league, you think basically it will be the same but, in the moment, no, nothing was the same. The opposition want it more and so you have to want it even more than that. It’s completely crazy. You have to fight more. The players give their lives for the game, for the moment and they are enjoying it.”
“The Premier League is more competitive, the competition is better, and it is good football,”
“I think the fans enjoy the game and football so much.”
