Newcastle defender Botman explains differences between Premier League and Ligue 1
Newcastle United defender Sven Botman has explained the differences between Ligue 1 and the Premier League.
He joined the Magpies from Lille this summer and reckons English football is much more intense that Ligue 1.
He said: "It's totally different here compared to Holland and France. The intensity is much quicker and the training is tougher. The pre-season is heavier.
"The coach is really good, he demands a lot from the players so the level is going higher and higher, which I think is really good.
"If you want to reach these kinds of goals, you need that level. I was really surprised by certain things but things are going well. I'm just excited to see us play in the Premier League."
