Watford fullback Kiko Femenia: Premier League pace suits me over Spain

Watford fullback Kiko Femenia believes his pace suits him perfectly for Premier League football.

The Spaniard left Alaves in the summer after spending his entire career in his homeland. And the 27-year-old says the English style of play helps accentuate his best qualities.

"I notice that the major difference is the back and front of the game and in Spain they wait more for the opening and study each team a bit more," he said.

"In England they open up more spaces and attack the defence more. The game is more dynamic and gives you more space as well.

"I think I have adapted very well and this style of game suits me. It had been an ambition of mine to play in the Premier League.

"Hopefully I will keep going and keep improving to do better every time."
