After three months in the Premier, he pointed to the main differences between the two competitions: "The intensity is a bit different. In the Premier the opposing team always creates something of danger. In Serie A, in some matches, but not always, the big team can control the matches. It is more tactical football, more studied. There is more space to move the ball in the defense, but when you go on the offensive, there is no room to create, the teams are organized from behind. The Premier League is more about intensity. In terms of quality, both leagues are very close, but here you have to be prepared for 90 minutes of full intensity, "he said.
