Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marcus Thuram is loving life in the Bundesliga and feels German football is much faster than French.

The 22-year-old joined Die Fohlen from Guingamp following their relegation to Ligue 2 and has enjoyed an excellent beginning to his career in the Germany.

The France Under-21 ace has bagged four top-flight goals from nine appearances and seems to have adapted well to life in the Bundesliga.

 

The Italian-born youngster has hit the ground running and now spoken about what he has had to adapt to since making the switch.

“The first difference I think – and the difference that I like the most – is the stadium,” he told bundesliga.com. “The atmosphere is incredible every game.

“The stadium is always full of people. And more technically about the game, here the players seem crazy on the pitch. From the first minute to the 90th-minute, they run everywhere. Everywhere.”

Gladbach have surprised many with their displays in the early part of the 2019-2020 campaign to sit top of the standings, with 19 points from nine games played.

It remains to be seen if they can stay on top of the pile all season as Bayern Munich are breathing down their necks and just one point behind, while a number of clubs are in striking distance.

There are two tough fixtures on the horizon as Marco Rose’s men visit Borussia Dortmund in the German Cup on Wednesday evening before a trip to take on Bayer Leverkusen in the league on Saturday.
