Ogbonna believes English football is more relaxed

Angelo_Ogbonna_BGR-ITA_2012Angelo Ogbonna has told the Italian press his difficulties to adapt to England and English football, claiming it is more relaxed but less sociable.

“Difficulties? The language,” Ogbonna told Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Although I have Nigerian roots, I’ve always been in Italy.”

“The other thing that makes me think is the less sociable nature of the British.

“It’s not easy to establish human relationships.”

“Everything is more relaxed,” Ogbonna added.
“There isn’t the pressure of Serie A.”(The Italians) work more though, training sessions every day and double sessions once a week, whereas here we often rest on Wednesday.“There’s more respect on the pitch.”
