Sebastian Prodl amazed by passion, commitment of Watford fans

Watford defender Sebastian Prodl is full of praise for the Hornets support.

Speaking with BILD, Prodl says the support of Watford fans is something he's never experienced before.

He said: "It was hard for me to leave Bremen because I'm a loyal guy. But it was the absolute right step. I fulfilled my dream. The Premier League suits me.

"The pace is already higher and the duels are much harder. But I grew up and have broad shoulders (laughs). The fan scene is also much more positive here than in Germany.

"Such club love like with Watford, I have otherwise experienced only in Bremen. Even in times of crisis, we players are rarely insulted by the fans. That's a big difference to the Bundesliga, where you sometimes have to take a lot."
