I Prefer English Playing Style Over Italian – Lookman

Nigerian international Ademola Lookman has expressed his preference for the playing style in England compared to Italy.

Lookman, who was born in England and has played for several English Premier League clubs including Everton, Fulham, and Leicester City, believes that his skill set aligns better with the style of play in his home country.

Despite a stint in Germany with RB Leipzig, the 26-year-old winger finds himself currently playing for Serie A club Atalanta. However, Lookman’s comments highlight his familiarity and comfort with the pace and tactics of English football.

“The Premier League is definitely suited to my style because it’s fast, technical, physical — and it’s the country I grew up in,” Lookman told The Athletic.

“But learning about the culture of football in Italy is really special. The build-up to the games, the atmosphere in the stadium, and the love that the fans have for football. It’s very special.”
