English football is physical, high tempo and technical - Liverpool's Cissokho

Liverpool defender Aly Cissokho has heaped praise on the English Premier League saying it is physical, of high tempo and technical.

The French left-back, on loan from Valencia, has previously played with FC Gueugnon and Lyon in France, with Vitoria Setubal and FC Porto and Portugal as well as in Spain and has rated the English league up there with the best.

"I'd say the English championship resembles the leagues I've known to date - very physical, high tempo, as in France, and like in Spain and Portugal, a lot of intensity, as with here, combined with technical football," he to,d the club's official website.

"It's very engaged, and it's non-stop. It's surprising to see that even with those teams in mid-table, as well as those nearer the top of the table, there's never a let up in the tempo, and they all play at the maximum level right up to the last minute of the match."
