Chelsea scout Guy Hillion admits English clubs take longer in the recruiting process to sign a player.
He revealed: "Like everyone else, they want talent. There is no specific research on big guys or athletic players. But the English clubs take longer before hiring someone. They like to see and review. This is the difference with the French clubs.
"The English want to know everything about the player, his game, his life outside of football, his family.
"In France, we decided faster."
