Nolberto Solano admits he jumped at the chance to follow Nigel Pearson from Leicester to Hull City.
The veteran winger was offered fresh terms to stick with the Foxes this summer, but snubbed that approach in favour of a switch to the KC Stadium.
That decision was motivated by Pearson's move to East Yorkshire shortly before, with the 46-year-old having decided to call time on his tenure at the Walkers Stadium.
Solano has revealed that he did not need much persuading to link-up with the Tigers, as he feels they have got the ideal man at the helm.
Pearson helped guide Leicester out of League One and into the Championship play-offs during his two years with the club and he is now being backed to make a similar impression at Hull - who suffered relegation out of the Premier League last season.
Solano told the Hull Daily Mail: "He's the perfect man. He's managed these situations before.
"He's a very good man. He's honest and he's fair to everyone.
"It can be difficult for a manager at times but he's always trying to keep people happy.
"To be successful sometimes you have to take things on the chin and be professional because it's not about individuals with him.
"It's all about the team and the club, it's not about individuals. He will make sure that everyone is doing their job on the pitch."
Solano, who has previously turned out for Newcastle, Aston Villa and West Ham, was tempted back to English football by Pearson midway through last season and he is delighted to have been offered the opportunity to prolong their working relationship.
"He told me at the end of last season that he was going to give me a new contract to stay at Leicester and I thought 'Great, I'm very happy with that'," added the Peruvian.
"What happened though was I didn't sign the contract straight away because I went back to Peru on holiday. The club sent my contract through the mail to my house, but I wasn't there.
"A week before I came back I had people ringing me and telling me Nigel is not with us any more.
"I rang Nigel to see what was going on as it's always better to know that you are going to work with someone you know. Nigel then said to me to come here and that made me very happy.
"The chance to work with the same guy who I have been working with for years is great."
