Robert Tesche admits that playing in England has not been easy for him since completing a move to the City Ground over the summer.
Tesche has become a regular in the Nottingham Forest line-up more recently and played 90 minutes against Watford, but he admits that it hasn't been the smoothest of transitions.
Tesche joined from Hamburg this summer on a free transfer and he has clearly found differences between Germany and English football.
“It’s good that Stuart Pearce has given me the chance to play," he said to Forest's official site. "It’s my first year in England and it’s not easy for me, but it’s okay.”
Despite his apparent struggles, Forest fans have generally been impressed with Tesche's performances.
The side have made an encouraging start to the season and have still only lost once in the league, putting them firmly in promotion contention.
The side drew 2-2 with Watford last night and Tesche says that he felt the game was a fair result.
"They had a lot of pressure but we stayed tight. I think the point is fair," he said.
“It’s not easy to play against Watford; they’re a good team. But I think we played well, much better than on Saturday, so we have to keep going.”
Forest's next game comes against Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, when they will be looking to return to winning ways.
