Arsenal keeper highlights difference between Premier League and Bundesliga

Arsenal keeper highlights difference between Premier League and Bundesliga

04 Apr 2019, 10:50

Arsenal shot-stopper Bernd Leno has revealed the major differences between Bundesliga and Premier League.

The German international joined the Gunners last summer for a reported fee of £22.5million from Bayer Leverkusen. Since joining Leno was restricted to the bench with Unai Emery preferring starting Petr Cech. However, he has established himself as Arsenal number one shot-stopper and was named Player of the Month of Match after impressing against Tottenham and Manchester United. 

"It’s difficult to go to another country and another league. The Premier League is completely different to the Champions League and Bundesliga. Everything is stronger but we analyzed everything so I could get used to it. After a few weeks, I was familiar with football. The biggest challenge is that every game is so difficult for 95 minutes. In the Bundesliga, if you’re 2-0 or 3-0 up then the game is over," he said. 

"But in the PL, when you’re 2-0 or 3-0 up the game is still alive for the opposition. The speed of the game is higher than everywhere and that’s the reason why it’s the best league in the world. Coupled with that, the life of a goalkeeper is not easy. One day you are good, one day you are very bad. But you have to be very strong in your head and mind. This pushes every goalkeeper and keeps them focused at all times."

"We all need the fans, me too, and it’s good to hear that fans like me or like the way that I play. I want to perform each game very well. But mostly I want to make sure the fans are happy as well."
