Obviously the culture's different and the fans have so much passion for the game and obviously support me every week. Not everyone is comfortable moving from home. "I think his decision to move to Germany tells you something about his character". He had a pass success rate of 91.7% and created several good opportunities for his teammates. "I knew about Theo Walcott, who was 16 [when he was called into the 2006 World Cup squad]. I don't know what to say to that".
