Fellow Ukrainian Oleg Luzhny, who spent four years at Arsenal, once said that in England "people put their heads where players in other leagues wouldn't dare put their feet" - and Voronin was quick to find that out for himself.

"Absolutely nothing has changed," he told Sport-Express. "And the team quickly made me understand Luzhny's comments. They warned me that if someone's boot was heading for my head I shouldn't stop, and to play on as if it was nothing.

"In England the referees aren't forever blowing their whistles - it's the opposite, they let the game flow and give the real men the chance to show themselves. And I have to confess this kind of football, with battles on every metre of the pitch, super high-speed football with numerous shots on goal, is really to my liking."
