Fulham loanee Kvist: Premier League a step up from Bundesliga

Fulham's William Kvist suggests that the English Premier Leaague is more 'explosive' than Germany's Bundesliga.

The 29-year old Danish midfielder joined the Cottagers on loan from VfB Stuttgart in late January and has so far made three starts in England's top flight.

Kvist left homeland club FC Copenhagen to join Stuttgart in 2011, which he admits was a step up, but says the difference between Germany and the Premier League is also noticeable.

"I noticed a change in pace when I moved from FC Copenhagen to Stuttgart in the past and I have noticed the same here," Kvist told Ekstra Bladet.

"I do not believe that we are running more than in the Bundesliga, but the pace is quicker.

"The ball is played more quickly, there are fewer touches, more pressure and the ball is moved up field quickly.

"The game is more explosive and that is something I like."
