David Ospina: What makes the English Premier League so unique


Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina says he had to adapt quickly to the frenetic pace of the English Premier League.

The Colombian joined the Gunners from Nice during last summer's transfer window and was expected to be Wojciech Szczesny's backup.

But after taking over from the Poland international, the 26-year-old brought solidity and organisation in the Arsenal defence.

And he is determined to keep his place ahead of the last part of the season.

"I have already felt the pace and physicality of the Premier League but it's something that you have to adapt to pretty quickly," Ospina told the club's official website.

"There are strong players here in the Premier League and it's not like they go on to the pitch with bad intentions, but there is a lot of contact and referees let the players get on with it.

"That's something that you have to prepare for and be ready for in England.

"It's a really special league. The important thing that distinguishes it from other leagues is that the players don't take anything for granted until the referee blows the final whistle - anything could happen."
