Cesare Casadei feels he's improved since leaving Inter Milan last summer for Chelsea.
Casadei is currently on-loan with Reading.
He said, “Good, I'm improving. I started this summer, practically from scratch. When I got there, it was difficult. But I've been taking lessons and I'm continuing, I'm slowly improving.
“It's still football so you adapt. It's actually a bit different there. At least where I am, first Chelsea and now Reading, you do a lot of training with the ball. There is a lot of intensity, the training sessions are also a lot of fun."
On his life in England, Casadei added: “For the first two months my brother came up, because he was better with the language than me and he helped me a lot. Then I settled in and now I'm on my own. Occasionally someone from my family comes to visit me. But mostly I'm on my own."
Casadei is currently with the Italy U21 squad, he added: "Coming back to Italy is always nice. It gives you the chance to get away a bit, to speak your own language a bit, which after a while you might miss. I'm always happy to come back and play with the national team."
