Liverpool striker Andriy Voronin has hailed the entertaining style of Premiership football.
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."
