‘Everything here is much more physical. The referees let the game run much more here than they do in the Bundesliga or even in international games’, he told Sport Bild.

‘As a goalkeeper, you have have no protection in England. Therefore, you have to acquire tremendous toughness.

‘No matter how you approach it, you always have to assume that nothing gets whistled.

‘Since I’ve come to England, I haven’t seen a goalkeeper win a single free kick inside the penalty area. That’s a big difference.’
