Salomon Kalou: Terry is incredible – he's defending like a 21-year-old again

So, how’s it going at Hertha? 
I'm really enjoying it here. Hertha is a good club that has come up – three years ago they were playing in the second division, so they are still learning about life in the top flight. But we have done OK, we are fighting as a team to stay in the league. We need just one point to stay in the Bundesliga at the moment and we are going to fight for that. We need to stay in the league and then build on that, to try to move up the league next season.

What do you like about the Bundesliga, and Berlin? 
The league is great. They have fantastic fans, the pitches are great and the stadiums are always full. It's like England in that way. I enjoy matchdays because the supporters are very passionate. Berlin is excellent too. It’s a multicultural city and you meet so many different kinds of people here. It’s like London in that way and I am getting to know people. Germans are very really friendly and Berlin is very laid back and nice.
