Chamakh adapting to Premier League life

Arsenal forward Marouane Chamakh insists he is slowly but surely adapting to the pace and ferocity of Premier League football. The France-born Morocco international joined The Gunners on a free transfer in the summer from Bordeaux. The 26-year-old found the tempo of his first game hard to register, stating he nearly had a seizure due to his effort levels. Chamakh never thought he would be able to last the 90 minutes in England's top-flight, something he has now achieved. "I almost had a seizure when I first played for Arsenal," explained Chamakh. "I told myself that I would never be able to stand up to playing an entire match. "At Arsenal we go on the attack all the time, and I was completely unaware when I first joined them. "At times I wanted our keeper to slow down play a little by keeping hold of the ball. But no, he'd launch it upfield straight away."
