Former Juventus defender Zdenek Grygera is delighted to have joined Fulham.

In what proved a somewhat active summer transfer window for Fulham, Grygera became the seventh of 10 new arrivals and joined John Arne Riise and Pajtim Kasami in making the move from Serie A.

“You can see that football in England is different to football in Italy,” he told fulhamfc.com. “It is a lot more physical over here and in my opinion the game is played at a higher level, although in Italy it is arguably more tactical.

“It was a great honour to play for a club like Juventus, one of the most renowned and successful clubs not just in Italy, but perhaps even the world. But after four seasons in Turin I am now concentrating on being here and doing well for Fulham.

“In the short while that I have been here I must say that I feel very good because everyone has been very welcoming. I can sense that there is a close bond within the squad and that is a very important thing – especially if we are to do well and move forward.”
