Arsenal’s Bernd Leno has revealed what he thinks is the biggest difference between the Premier League and the Bundesliga (via Arsenal.com).
Arsenal have found their form in the last couple of months and the club’s new goalkeeper Bernd Leno is no exception.
After a slow start, Leno has become the established number one at the Emirates and is now playing well.
The 27-year-old has now made 24 appearances in all competitions after seven seasons in the Bundesliga, something which he commented on in a recent interview.
“It’s difficult to go to another country and another league,” Leno confessed.

“The Premier League is completely different to the Champions League and Bundesliga. Everything is stronger but we analysed everything so I could get used to it. After a few weeks I was familiar with the 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. 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.”
Bernd Leno has really found his form of late with a string of impressive performances between the sticks. The German now looks comfortable and reliable in goals for the Gunners and settled in the Premier League. Let’s hope it continues.
