Perri explains a footballer's life moving to England

Crystal Palace signed goalkeeper Lucas Perri from Sao Paulo towards the end of January, and he has been settling in with the club ever since.

The shot-stopper upped-sticks from Brazil for the first time in his life to move to south London, and took a moment recently to explain just what happens when a player from abroad moves to England, how they settle in and in what way the change affects their life.

Though for many people moving country may be a pivotal, life-changing decision, it appears that for a footballer, it has to be one made swiftly and without delay, as the Brazilian found himself at work on the training pitches the day after his plane landed in Blighty.
