Southampton defender Dejan Lovren admits he feels well suited to the Premier League.

The former Dinamo Zagreb man admits he is loving life in the English game and is pleased by what he believes are more lenient referees than in Ligue 1.

"I like the Premier league, I like the style of everything here," he said.

"I like the referees because you can tackle and you will receive maybe a yellow card where for the same tackle in France I would receive three years in prison!"
