Watford midfielder Ken Sema has spoken to the Swedish media about how he’s adapting to life at his new club.

Sema joined the Premier League club from Östersund in the last transfer window.

Speaking to Sport Bladet, the Sweden international was asked playing in the English top flight: “It hurts, it does. You are like “ok, okay”, you are not really used to it. When I played in Sweden, I had so much, I felt very powerful and fast and physical.

“When I came to the Premier League, I’m in the crowd and I see it as a fan. It’s fast. And it’s always a hundred percent, in everything you do. But it’s fun, I’m ready for it. I’ve been fighting for a long time to come here.”

In July it was confirmed Sema had signed for Watford on a five year contract after impressing for OFK in the Europa League last season. The Swede was key in the club making the knockout stages of the competition and the 24 year old scored OFK’s winner against Arsenal at the Emirates.

Sema has yet to make a start in the Premier League for the Hornets but has come on as a substitute in three of the opening games. His attitude towards the challenges ahead of him sounds spot on and he’s certainly not shying away from the physical battle in English football.

The player is currently away with the Swedish national team, and after missing out on a World Cup place this summer he’ll be determined to impress.
