Judging by his performances on the pitch, it’s no surprise to learn that Sead Kolasinac has made a swift adaption to life in England.
The Bosnia international has become an instant fans’ favourite with his full-blooded approach, and he is making progress off the pitch too - even if some of his new team-mates can be quite hard to understand.
“That’s really, really difficult,” Kolasinac told Arsenal Player. “When I listen to the English players, like when Ox talks to Danny, I need to listen twice because it’s so quick and it’s hard through the accent! But I’ve got time to learn it and I will do that.
“Everyone has welcomed me so well and speak a lot of English with me to help me learn the language. I’m pleased that I get on so well with everyone.
“Everyone has impressed me, everyone has their own personality and I’ve got to know that. There hasn’t been a negative experience with a team-mate yet where I’ve not got on with them.
“I’m pleased to have had the chance to get to know them on tour and until now I’ve got on really well with everyone.”
