Winger Arvin Appiah has disclosed the difference between English Championship football and the Spanish segunda division.
The Almeria forward, who joined from championship side Nottingham Forest last summer says Spanish football is more tactical and technical compared to the highly demanding English football.
“Championship football is a lot more physical than Spain, you know the demand of games in the Championship is a lot.” Appiah told Skysports.
“I feel in Spain it’s a lot more tactical, technical. The way we play with Guti, he came from Real Madrid, he’s obviously a technical player and he wants us to play out from the back, pass move…I’ve learnt so many things from him.”
The 19-year old England born Ghanaian has gradually found his way into manager Jose Maria Guti’s side after a difficult start to life in Spain.
“At first I wasn’t playing and I was getting used to the lifestyle, the culture and stuff but…when I started to play they were very welcoming, they really noticed what I brought to the team,” says Appiah.
He made 13 appearances in the Segunda division before the suspension of the league due to coronavirus.
