Liverpool striker Fernando Torres admits he is enjoying life in England and praised the ‘honest football’ of the Premier League.
The Spaniard arrived in England this summer from Atletico Madrid and has impressed from the off, scoring eight goals in 10 starts.
“It is football you can really enjoy – I certainly have since I arrived in England,” Torres said in the Daily Express.
“It is what I would call an honest type of football. The game in Spain is stop and go. Someone is fouled, the player goes down and the game stops for the free-kick.
“In this country a player will battle hard to stay on his feet and the referees will allow little things to go so that the game can be more continuous.
“I like that, it is very different to Spain. I watched a lot of English football before I arrived so it was not completely new to me.
“But you cannot really know what you are going to experience until you have stepped on to the pitch in a match. But it suits the way I like to play.”
