"This is a different level. Everything is done much faster. Not only do you have to make decisions fast, [you] have to think ahead. This is especially difficult for players here, where they come from a background where a lot of the next moves are being told to them. 'Oh, you pass here, pass there.' It's not working. The moment you go to a higher level, you've got to think ahead. You've got to move into the space before the ball comes."
