The 19-year-old who had a loan spell at RB Salzburg’s feeder side, Liefering spoke to Radio Gold Sports.
“The start is always difficult, I went there during the winter season and that was when the snow was falling.
“And playing under the snow is very difficult, your legs will be so cold, your hands, your body so it was difficult for me but as time went on I got adapt to the weather, I got to adapt to the food and the system of play because there it is very intensive not as compared to the Ghana Premier League.
“There is so much intensity, it is very fast so if you are not mentally prepared, it will be very difficult to play.
“In WAFA I played all the games, almost all the games both home and away games.
“And you know how Ghana Premier League is, a lot of fighting especially in the away games.
“If you go to the away games the referees, the supporters are against you so it made me really strong.” Lawrence Agyekum told Radio Gold Sports.
